Boat fees have been reduced to $5 a day on Lake Robinson for motorized (10 horsepower maximum) and non-motorized boats.

 

Daily boat permits for Greer residents on Lake Robinson just got a lot cheaper.

Greer Commission of Public Works commissioners unanimously approved a recommendation from CPW staff to reduce daily residential boat permit fees to $5, effective immediately. That’s a 75 percent decrease from the $20 fee set in August 2013.

Boat fees are:

$55 annual (motors up to 10 horsepower)

$30 annual (non-motorized boats)

$30 annual (resident)

$5 daily rental (resident)

There were only 15 resident fees – 12 daily, 3 annual – recorded in 2016 that brought in $330. Sixteen CPW/DNR permits ($25 each) added $400.

Boat fee permits accounted for $52,415 in 2016.

• $32,725 (595 permits, annual motorized )

• $18,960 (634 annual non-motorized)

• $400 (16 annual CPW/DNR)

• $330 (15 residential daily and annual)

$52,415 = Total

CPW made wholesale rate increases for lake permits and shelter rentals on Lake Robinson and Lake Cunningham in 2013 to recoup operational fees. It was the first increase since 2004 and only the second since 1986. An example was boat fees increasing from $3 a day in 2004 to $20 in 2013 and rolled back on Monday.

All other fees remain the same as published on the CPW website.
