ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

Ordinance 2021-08(b)(am)(C) An Ordinance Appropriating $150,000 to the Manager as Funding for a Tourism Manager; Funding Provided by Marine Passenger Fees.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

The Visitor Industry Task Force has recommended that CBJ should establish a centralized tourism management function to guide implementation of the Tourism Management Plan. This ordinance would appropriate $150,000 of passenger fees for a tourism manager position for the remainder of FY22. This position would coordinate diverse activities and entities involved in public outreach, cruise scheduling, planning, permitting, infrastructure development, operations and maintenance, monitoring and reporting, and enforcement. Creating this position ensures that CBJ will take a more central role in managing outcomes and collaborating with the various active players in the community.

 

The Committee of the Whole reviewed this request at the July 19, 2021 meeting and recommended CBJ staff draft an appropriating ordinance for introduction.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends the Assembly adopt this ordinance.
