KETCHIKAN (AP) -- Cordova residents have approved a cruise ship head tax by one vote.

Absentee ballots were counted Tuesday and the new total shows 324 people voted in favor of a passenger fee and 323 people voted against it, KRBD radio reported. Cordova's city council was to meet Tuesday night to certify the results of the March 6 general election.

The initiative would charge cruise ship passengers $5 to visit Cordova. The fee takes effect next January.

According to the Cordova City Clerk's office, turnout in the election was 30 percent.
