Marine Passenger Fee Proceeds
Information for FY 2014
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 Marine Passenger Fee Proceeds Committee.
The City Manager annually develops a proposed list of Marine Passenger Fee Proceeds Fund projects through requests from the industry, city departments, and individual businesses and citizens. All proposals received for Marine Passenger Fee Proceeds project requests will be forwarded with the City Manager’s proposed list to the Assembly Finance Committee.
Proposals will be accepted from the public beginning December 1, 2012 through the close of business December 31, 2012. Submittals received after December 31, 2012, will not considered.
The Draft Recommendation List will be posted and open for public comment from: February 1, 2013 through close of business February 28, 2013.
The Final Recommendation List will be forwarded to the Assembly Finance Committee by the City Manager on March 1, 2013.
