Harbor rate increases too high

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, May 24, 2005

Like Mr. Burgoyne (My Turn, May 18), I also feel that harbor users are getting the short end of the stick. I do not believe some of the things he mentioned like roads, airport, fire, police, hospital, should, or even could, be an enterprise fund, but boaters should certainly be on a par with skiers and ice skaters. Aren't they talking about putting in another ski lift, funded by the city?

By the way, my 40 percent rate increase has turned out to be 76 percent. Ouch!
