Cruise industry rep tells Ketchikan City Council that agreement to free up port revenue ‘is worth looking at’
Ketchikan’s City Council pressed the head of an Alaska cruise industry group on Thursday about how cruise lines can help the city upgrade its port and pay for infrastructure to support the tourism economy.
Charlie Ball, the president of Cruise Lines International Association Alaska, said he was open to allowing Ketchikan to spend some of its port fees on city services, but didn’t make any firm commitments.
Ketchikan City Council members wanted to know if there was any room for leeway when it comes to how to spend passenger and cruise fees.
