Juneau Building War Chest

As you may remember, the city of Juneau is in a fight with the cruise lines over the proper use of money the city receives from the Alaskan head tax. It is supposed to be used for things which benefit cruise passengers. To make a long story short, the city used some of the money to build a park in an area of town the cruise lines say it would be unlikely for cruise passengers to ever go to, and the cruise lines sued the city.

The city is now planning to set aside even more funds to cover the estimated $1.6 million cost of legal fees.

Details appeared in the February 8 edition of Cruise News Daily.
