Tahoe City PUD to collect public input on new boat fees

Sun Staff Report

TAHOE CITY ” The Tahoe City PUD is holding a Special Board Meeting at 5 p.m. on Monday, May 11, 2009, in the District’s Board Room, 221 Fairway Drive, Tahoe City, to receive public comment on the new boat launch fees approved by the Board on April 17.

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 their April 17, 2009, 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.

With the adoption of this new structure the current $10 per day parking fee will be eliminated making on-site parking available on a first come first served basis only.

The District understands that these changes are significant but are necessary in order to comply with TRPA regulations, better serve our local residents and visitors and recover increased costs.

These new launch fees will be in addition to fees charged by TRPA for the inspection of vessels entering Lake Tahoe. For a complete explanation of TRPA’s Boat Inspection fees please visit 1-888-TAHO-ANS.

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