City Assembly to consider several ordinances Monday

The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly will look over and possibly approve a wide-array of ordinances during its meeting 7 p.m. Monday.

The Assembly will have nine new ordinances to consider, including one that would appropriate $600,000 to the RecycleWorks/Waste Management Enterprise Fund. Voters approved $2 million in temporary sales tax in 2017 for that program.

There will also be a possible marijuana license agreement with Always Redeye LLC Standard Marijuana Cultivation Facility, 2001 Anka Street. Public Works/Utilities and Finance staff initially recommended a protest of this license due to water utility shut-off and non-payment on Dec. 18, 2017 after the company received a Conditional Use Permit Oct. 26, 2017 because it did not have a CBJ marijuana license to operate. The Always Redeye has brought its account current, according to the Assembly agenda, and the protest was withdrawn Feb. 28.

The Assembly will also look into adopting an ordinance that would transfer $200,000 from the Harbor Fund to a new Capital Improvement Project for Auke Bay Marine Station Maintenance and Improvements. The Harbor Fund currently has a balance of $1,485,517 and the transfer would place it at $1,285,517.

The CBJ Assembly Human Resources Committee will meet for its regular meeting at 6 p.m. Monday.
