This regulation would increase the charge assessed to vessels for berthing at the Intermediate Vessel Float, Steamship Wharf, Cruise Ship Terminal, Port Field Office Float, Inside of the Cruise Ship Terminal, and vessels making reservations at the Statter Harbor breakwater.
The proposed changes would double the fees currently assessed vessels at these locations based on a tiered linear feet basis. This fee does not affect moorage at the small boat harbors.
The Docks and Harbor Board recommended these fees be increased at a special Board meeting held on May 19. The Board received public comment through verbal testimony before deliberating on the recommended fee increase. This regulation was last changed in 2004.
The Assembly’s review is guided by CBJC 01.60.260. Notably, the Assembly cannot amend the regulations tonight. However, the Assembly may do one of the following:
1. Not take up consideration of the regulations by moving the regulations with orders of the day, which means the regulations are approved;
2. Discuss the regulations and move to adopt the regulations;
3. Discuss the regulations and direct the Manager to consider reasons to review the regulations again; or
4. Direct the Attorney to prepare an ordinance or resolution for consideration of the substance of the regulations.
