This ordinance appropriates $16,500 in grant funding to the Library Department, for the purpose of expanding hours of operation at the City Museum. There is no matching requirement for this grant.
Grant funding is provided by the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum through donations made for this purpose by the Benito & Frances C. Gaguine Foundation, Michelle & Robert Storer, Alison E. Browne, and the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. These funds were raised to increase hours of operations at the museum. The funds will allow an increase in museum staffing from 0.75 FTE to 1.00 FTE for FY18. The grant fully funds salaries and benefits for this increase; there is no impact to support from the general fund.
