The Anchorage Assembly is taking on several topics at its meeting this week, ranging from the municipality's minimum age for buying cigarettes to bicycle theft and the location of a school-bus barn.

Assembly member Dick Traini's tobacco ordinance, being introduced Tuesday night, would raise the legal minimum age to buy cigarettes or tobacco products within the municipality from 19 to 21 years.

Traini said the measure, which would take effect in 30 days if approved, is meant to improve the community's health.
