JUNEAU- Juneau residents and organizations wishing to submit project proposals for programs funded by fees on cruise ship passengers must do so by Dec. 31.

The deadline to have proposals into the city manager's office is the close of day Tuesday. The proposals will be posted online Thursday, and a one-month public comment period begins Jan. 15.
City Manager Kim Kiefer will forward recommendations to the assembly finance committee, which will consider them as part of the budgeting process this spring.
Some of the projects funded last year include paying for medical services at the hospital and medevac programs, cleaning public facilities and increasing security downtown when tourists are in town.
