Marine Passenger Fee Proceeds

Information for FY 2015


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 funded projects through requests from the industry, city departments, and individual businesses and citizens. All proposals received for Marine Passenger Fee project requests will be forwarded with the City Manager’s proposed list to the Assembly Finance Committee.


Submittal Process/Timeline:

Proposals will be accepted from the public: December 1, 2013 through close of business December 31, 2013. Submittals received after December 31, 2013, will not be considered.
