The town of Plymouth, MA, is proposing an increase in existing mooring and waterway fees, as well as new fees for inland moorings and dock permits, according to an article on WickedLocal Plymouth.

The proposed new annual fees would break down as follows:

  • Coastal moorings: $100
  • Floats: $50 fee for floats
  • Inland moorings: $75
  • Inland rafts & floats: $50 for inland rafts and floats
  • Inland docks: $100 for the first year, and $50 thereafter

The proposal would also change the mooring fee rates, increase the tender fee from $50 to $100, and increase the commercial dockage fee (for companies that use the pier to purchase seafood and deliver fuel) from $500 to $600 annually.

The proposal includes an increase in the boat ramp launch fee from $5 to $10 per day or, for the year, from $50 to $100.

The increases and new fees could generate $155,780, a $65,000 increase over the most recent figures, according to the article.
