    There was only one action item on the agenda of the CBJ Docks and Harbors Board meeting Thursday night.

    Port Director Carl Uchytil explained on Action Line that a discount is provided to fishing vessels that have downtown moorage, where they can get up to 20 free days of moorage at Statter Harbor based on certain criteria, one being that they sell to one of the two Juneau processors.

    Uchytil has the results from Thursday night's meeting, "The board elected to make no changes to the regulation pertaining to active fishing vessel discount at Stator Harbor. The board also heard updates on the cruise ship berth vibration monitoring project as well as updates on the Aura Harbor phase two planning efforts. The board also heard updates on the Immersion Center which will be run by the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida at the former Thane Ore House."

    Uchytill says the waste management plan was also up for discussion. He said it's part of the Alaska Clean Harbors program that Docks and Harbors is undertaking and the assembly recently approved a resolution in support of Juneau proceeding with the program, which would certify that they are using best management practices for recycling, waste management, signage, and for use of the grid.
