City Council Sets Mooring Fees at $35

In a nutshell, at the January 26, 2016 City Council meeting, the City Council voted 5 to 2 in support of the resolution setting mooring fees at $35/linear foot/year effective with 2016 permit issuance. Half of that rate will be charged for shore moorings. More to follow. Council will resolve transferability next month. Thank you for your support of the NMA and your fellow mooring permit holders.
