Among the proposed budget changes discussed at Wednesday’s Havre de Grace City Council work session is one that has been controversial when discussed in the past, but one that city officials think is necessary: charging boat owners who lease slips in the City Yacht Basin by the size of their boat rather than a flat fee.

The change would bring an estimated additional $112,000 in marina operating revenue.

Several council members, including Fred Cullum, said changing the method of charging customers is not a good idea. Havre de Grace Mayor Wayne Dougherty disagreed.

“We have to get the biggest bang for our buck,” he said.

Dougherty said it will help reserve larger spaces for larger boats, instead of allowing a 25-foot boat to take up a 35-foot space.

The entire yacht basin operation was reviewed recently by former councilman Stephen Gamatoria, who served as interim dockmaster last year to gather information.
