Harbor District considering increased fees to cover deficit

By on Tue, May 9, 2006

The Harbor District, which operates Pillar Point Harbor, is likely to increase fees beginning July 1, reports the Examiner. The district is facing a deficit of $573,000.

Pillar Point in particular has been hit hard by a loss of revenue due to restrictions on salmon fishing, the closure of Devil’s Slide and cool, overcast weather, Harbor District General Manager Peter Grenell said.

Another reason for the deficit was the district’s payments for construction debt to the state Department of Boating and Waterways. The Harbor District will hold a public hearing on the proposed budget at its meeting June 21, at the Municipal Services Building, 33 Arroyo Drive, South San Francisco, CA 94083 at 7:00 p.m.
