Six cruise ships docked in Juneau at once can guzzle about 1 million gallons of water a day.
The City and Borough of Juneau’s Docks and Harbors Department announced Friday evening that it will delay opening bids for a $54 million floating cruise ship berth project until the city is granted ownership of submerged tidelands by the State of Alaska.
The Juneau Assembly on Wednesday grilled Port Director Carl Uchytil and Engineer Gary Gillette over the Docks and Harbors Department’s decision to proceed with the project despite the city not owning submerged tidelands.
Port officials say the issue is not a major concern, and they expect the submerged land to be deeded to the city by the State of Alaska before construction gets underway next year.
It’s time for the second round of Ski Town Throwdown.
"The whole history of the Shrine is just everyday people in Juneau and outside of Juneau who have just loved it," says Shrine executive director Deirdre Darr.
"People of all denominations or no denomination felt comfortable coming to the Shrine and that’s been the flavor ever since and that’s something that I would never want to see lost," says former Shrine director Thomas Fitterer.
Juneau’s Eaglecrest is on to the second round of the Ski Town Throwdown.
