The fee increase is part of the “Fiscal Stability for Boating Programs”... "During this time, the fund has faced increasing cost pressures, such as climate-driven expansion of the Aquatic Invasive Plant Control Program (AIPCP), liabilities for Davis Dolwig payments, new fund commitments for the Public Beach Restoration Fund, and increasing employee compensation costs, without additional revenue sources,” said DBW staff in a statement emailed to The Log.
Seems very likely the cost increase is to pay PEOPLE. Salaries and wages are increased, contractor pay isn't negotiated effectively, and then the higher costs result in a deficit. Govt agencies will never learn that they can't spending $$ they don't have because legislation like this shows them that they can.
“We believe it is a more equitable approach to fee raising, similar to the way DMV charges registration fees,” Schaafsma said at the meeting.
Agree to pay out more and then raise taxes to cover the difference. What makes this approach equitable?
