The City of Unalaska has raised port tariffs for the first time in six years.

On Tuesday, the City Council unanimously approved a three percent rate hike for dockage and wharfage at the Unalaska Marine Center, as well a seven percent increase for cruise ships.

It’s standard procedure to adjust tariffs every five or six years, according to Port Director Peggy McLaughlin.

She said the new rates go into effect on Aug. 14.
