September 17, 2002 Public Hearing:
 

  1. Fees for Floating Home Berths and Charter Vessels Operating from Private Docks

Recommendation:  The City of Berkeley Department of Parks Recreation and Waterfront is proposing to increase the fees for floating homes by: 1) including floating homes in the berth rate fee for all berthers with 48 and 52 foot slips; and 2) imposing the $125/per month live-aboard fee to all floating home berths in the Berkeley Marina.  The fee schedule will increase berth fees for floating home owners to $5.65/foot per month for 48 foot berths and $5.90/foot per month for 52 foot berths. 

The fees are intended to bring the floating home berths into the same fee schedule with other live-aboard vessels berthed in the Marina.  The fees assist the City in covering costs associated with maintaining public facilities at the Marina and in providing services to persons who use the Marina.  The fee increases will generate approximately $7,700 the first year and thereafter will be affected by the same adjustments applied to all other berthers in the Marina. 

Recommendation:  Adopt a use fee of $.50 per customer for charters docked in private docks in the Marina, to be paid annually to the Berkeley Marina.

The fees are for use of the harbor and parking areas, and to compensate the Berkeley Marina for services and use of Marina facilities.

Recommendation:  Eliminate the $50 per additional person living aboard a live-aboard vessel/floating home.  Administration of the fee is more costly than the revenue produced.

For further information, call Cliff Marchetti, Waterfront Manager, 644-6376, ext. 224.
