Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The CBJ Docks and Harbors Board of Directors will be asked to approve a transfer of funds during its meeting this evening for phase three of the Statter Harbor capital improvement project.
Port Director Carl Uchytil said on Action Line that the funds are coming from phase two of the Aurora Harbor project which is scheduled to wrap up Monday. He said it amounts to $690,000. Since bids for phase two of the Aurora project were favorable, Uchytil said the funds weren't needed.
Phase Three of the Statter project is for the for hire float, according to the port director. Uchytil said the funding will act as a match to leverage state marine passenger fees.
Also on the agenda is a transfer of funds for the cathodic projection project aimed a curbing corrosion of the retaining wall at Marine Park.
Uchytil said the board will be asked to approve the transfer of $10,000 from the Cruise Ship Berth capital improvement project as a contingency in the event it is needed depending on what the contractor may find.
A professional services contract award to PND Engineers is up for approval. It amounts to $200,000 and is for the advance design of the bus staging area and open space decking that will be on the Archipelago Lot which is the dirt lot south of the downtown library.
But the Docks and Harbors Board must okay the contract award first.
The board meeting is scheduled to convene at 5 p.m. Thursday in Assembly Chambers at City Hall.
