The high cost of doing government business in Alaska was outlined Wednesday in a report from the Alaska Public Policy Forum that showed nearly three-quarters of Anchorage Municipal employees are compensated to the tune of $100,000 or more.

The figure is not what employees see in pay, according to forum executive directory Bethany McKay, but what they cost the municipality.
