Juneau International Airport officials plan to fill a $371,000 deficit this fiscal year using reserve funds – an exercise they’re likely to repeat in 2013.
Last year at this time, the city-owned airport presented a balanced budget of about $4.9-million to the Juneau Assembly. But according to materials provided to the Assembly Finance Committee this week, actual spending is expected to be closer to $5.2-million, while revenues have not lived up to projections.
The airport’s FY13 budget calls for about $5.3-million in expenses, with just over $5-million in revenues. Again, the deficit is expected to be made up with reserves.
Deputy Airport Manager Patty deLaBruere could not be reached for comment. She’s scheduled to give a presentation to the Finance Committee tonight (Wednesday) as part of the committee’s biennial budget review.
The Juneau Human Rights Commission, Alaska Committee, and Convention and Visitors Bureau also are scheduled to present budget requests.
The Assembly-appointed Human Rights Commission is asking for $2,500 for its “I Am Juneau” events. But the proposed budget does not include any funding for the panel.
The Alaska Committee and Convention and Visitors Bureau are requesting the same level of funding as last year – $434,000 and $650,000 dollars respectively.
The Finance Committee meets at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall Assembly Chambers.
