Assembly to continue dock, moorage discussions

A decision could come down Tuesday on whether Sitkans will get to vote on a cruise ship dock near downtown.

The Sitka Assembly is slated to give final approval to a proposal for the municipal ballot at its regular meeting on Tuesday. The measure would ask voters whether they want the city to pursue funding on a dock for two ships. It would likely be located off the Crescent Harbor breakwater.

The Assembly also will continue discussion over moorage charges, or harbor rates. The city is increasing rates to pay for the repair and replacement of aging harbor infrastructure.
