V.CONSENT AGENDA TOPICS
A.Resolution 2958(b) A Resolution of the City and Borough of Juneau in Support of the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainably and Equity (RAISE) Grant Program.

This Resolution supports application by CBJ Docks and Harbors for a federal grant from the US Department of Transportation, known as a RAISE grant. If awarded, the grant would provide funding for electrification of cruise ship docks owned by the City and Borough. Total project cost for the required municipal infrastructure (including power transformation) is estimated at approximately $21 million dollars.

 

Under the federal rules, Juneau would be considered a rural community applicant and as such, no match is required. However, expressing a willingness to provide a local match will enhance the scoring of the application.

 

The Assembly adopted Resolution 2958 on June 14, 2021. Version (b) of this resolution has been amended to give the Assembly an opportunity to provide a nonbinding dollar amount for match funding.

 

This topic was discussed by the Assembly Committee of the Whole on June 7, 2021.

The City Manager recommends the Assembly pick a maximum match amount and then adopt this resolution.
