Passenger Fee Proceeds

Information for FY 2013


In 1999, City and Borough of Juneau voters passed Proposition 1, assigning a tax of $5 per cruise ship passenger to assist in funding projects that enhance the tourism experience and offset community impacts created by the cruise ship industry. Federal law requires that any project funded with these fees must address both the “safety and accessibility” of cruise ship passengers. In 2008, the Assembly amended the ordinance to provide for the solicitation to be issued by posting on the CBJ website and disestablished the Passenger Fee Proceeds Committee.

The City Manager annually develops a proposed list of Passenger Fee Proceeds Fund projects through requests from the industry, city departments, and individual businesses and citizens. All proposals received for Passenger Fee Proceeds project requests will be forwarded with the Manager’s proposed list to the Assembly Finance Committee.

The timeline for proposals to be received from the public closed as of the close of business December 31, 2011. Submittals received after that date were not considered.

The Draft Recommendation list was posted and open for public comment from January 25 through February 27, 2012.  The final recommendations forwarded to the Assembly Finance Committee by the City Manager are posted below.

If you have questions please contact the City Manager’s Office at 907-586-5240.
