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

Ordinance 2021-08(b)(am)(AP) An Ordinance Appropriating up to $800,000 to the Manager for the Eaglecrest Gondola Capital Improvement Project; Funding Provided by General Funds.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

The Purchasing Officer is processing bids to transport the gondola from Austria to Juneau, which was initially estimated to be $400,000. However, the potential lowest bid is nearly $850,000 and the other bid is nearly $1,120,000. With CBJ having contracted to pay $1.34 million (1.23M Euro) for the gondola itself plus the engineering inspection costs, loading/export fees, employee travel costs, and attorney fees, there is insufficient budget authority in the existing appropriation to sign a contract for the transportation. Given the gondola transportation bids, a $500,000 supplemental appropriation is currently necessary to fund transportation at the lower bid.

RECOMMENDATION:

The Manager recommends the Assembly introduce this ordinance and set it for public hearing at the next regular or special Assembly meeting.
