FY11 Passenger Fee Proceeds - Archive
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.
To submit a project request for Passenger Fee Proceeds, please send a written request to the City Manager's Office. Requests will be accepted via mail, hand delivery, or facsimile. The mailing and physical address is 155 S. Seward Street, Juneau, Alaska 99801. The fax number is 907-586-5385.
All submittals must be received for the City Manager to review by close of business December 31, 2011. Submittals received after that date will not be considered.
The Draft Recommendation list will be available on this site January 17, 2012, beginning the comment period that is open until close of business February 17, 2012. The final recommendation list will be posted here on March 1, 2012.
If you have questions please contact the City Manager’s Office at 907-586-5240.
