New Lake Tahoe boat ramp regulations up for review

Sun Staff Report

TAHOE CITY ” Tahoe City officials will consider modifying the current schedule and fees at the popular Lake Forest Boat Ramp.

The Tahoe City PUD will hold a special board meeting at 3 p.m. June 5, in the District’s Board Room, 221 Fairway Drive, Tahoe City, to hear staff recommendations pertaining to the modification of Board approved Lake Forest Boat Ramp fees, previously established pass rates, the clarification of “resident discounts” and the consideration of modifications to the hours of ramp operation and levels of service.

As previously reported, the TRPA is now requiring that Lake Tahoe boat launches be closed unless qualified invasive species inspectors are present. This will significantly increase the cost of operation for the Lake Forest Public Boat Ramp. At its April 17 meeting, the TCPUD Board of Directors voted to increase qualified Boat Ramp staffing.

Further, the Board voted to adopt a new boat launching fee structure to cover the increased cost of mandatory staffing. These fees will not be implemented until a contract amendment is signed by the ramps owner, the Wildlife Conservation Board.

For additional information on the Special Board meeting please call Alan at (530) 583-3796, x 21.
