The City and Borough of Juneau is accepting project proposals for how to spend the Maritime Passenger Fee.
Business and residents are encouraged to submit ideas now through Jan. 2, 2019. Based on projected passenger numbers, the amount of revenue from the CBJ Marine Passenger Fee is anticipated to be around $5.8 million, according to a CBJ press release.
The city manager will develop a draft recommendation list of projects to be funded with the proceeds from the fee by Jan. 15, 2019. The public will then have 30 days to comment on the list. All fee project proposals and comments will be forwarded along to the Assembly Finance Committee for review, and then to the Assembly for consideration during the upcoming budget cycle.
