Harbor moorage is offered to the public at rates recommended by the Park Board and established by ordinance by the City Council. All vessels moored, docked or in any way using harbor dock space must be permitted by the Park and Recreation Department and have affixed the current season dock rental identification.
 

 

Season Use

The official harbor moorage season is from 4/1/13 to 10/31/13. All vessels using the Marina harbor during the designated season must have the permit decal for that season properly affixed.
