The Anchorage Assembly is the Municipality of Anchorage's legislative body. The eleven-member body is responsible for setting Municipal policy through enactment of laws (ordinances) and adoption of resolutions. Each Assemblymember is elected by section and serves a three-year term.

The Assembly enacts all laws; approves Municipal and School Board budgets; appropriates all money; awards contracts over $100,000 through the competitive bid process; confirms all appointments to Municipal boards and commissions, and other executive level staff as provided in the Anchorage Municipal Code; and certifies Municipal elections.
