There's one action item on the agenda of the CBJ Docks and Harbors Board meeting this evening.
Port Director Carl Uchytil says it involves a moorage discount for an active fishing vessel at Statter Harbor, "There is a discount that is provided to fishing vessels that have downtown moorage. They can get up to 20 free days of moorage at Stator Harbor based on certain criteria. One of the criteria is that they sell to one of the two Juneau processors. We've just had a lively spirited debate whether this is fair or not and the motion moving forward is to leave it as is. For these vessels to achieve this they have to sell to either Alaska Glacier Seafood or Taku Smokeries. There's pros and cons to it but that's where the board is leaning."
Port Engineer Gary Gillette says the board will be briefed on planing for phase two of the Aurora Harbor project, "Phase one was completed in May so we're kind of marching north. The next section would be three or four floats and finger where the boat shelters are. We're looking at that just getting into the design phase of that. We've got a grant application into the state and if the state approves their budget we're hoping to get that designed and ready to construct by late fall or winter."
Uchytill says says the waste management plan is up for discussion, "That's part of the Alaska Clean Harbors program that Docks and Harbors is undertaking. Around Monday the assembly approved a resolution in support of Juneau proceeding with this Alaska Clean Harbors. Alaska Clean Harbors is a certification which allows us through a third party board receive this certification that basically says we're using best management practices for recycling, waste management, signage, and for use of the grid. So there's a lot of things that we need to fulfil to get this certification. We're talking about sewage in the harbor and how we can manage that and enforce the rules in effect right now in a more effective manor."
The Docks and Harbors Board meeting is scheduled to convene at 5 p.m. in Assembly Chambers at City Hall.
