boom advisory: $25k found

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014 reports $25k/year is needed to pay for a new red boat.

In 2012, less than a year after increasing slip rates by $3/foot for all slip renters, Feller-Felien-Fern effectively reversed its vote, and lowered the commercial fishing fleet rate to $8/foot. The harbor coordinator, Mr. Quan, reported at the time it would amount to a $25k/year revenue loss “reduction.”

Since Mr. Quan’s report wasn’t entirely consistent with his oral presentation to the Council, as outlined in this 2012 post, it might be a good time to take a second look.
