Raise in mooring fees uncalled for

The Harbor Management Commission has increased the fees for mooring owners again. It affects anyone owning or renting a mooring in Jamestown who will now pay more to use a space in Jamestown waters. This fee – or tax – will be used for Jamestown infrastructure that is not associated with moorings or boats. Infrastructure built and maintained until now by all resident taxpayers but now to be paid for out of your pocket. Please attend the workshop July 18 at 7 p.m. and have a say in this matter.
