TRPA approves boating fee structure

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency approved a slightly modified fee schedule for its 2013 boat inspection this week. The agency’s Governing Board approved the fee schedule at a Wednesday meeting in Kings Beach.

The schedule does not raise the fees for required invasive species inspections, but does include additional fees when boats with certain accessories require decontamination, as well as when deferred payments are required. The agency also approved shortened hours at inspection stations this week.

The agency’s Meyers, Spooner and Alpine inspection stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Sunday through Wednesday, and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Each of these stations is scheduled to be open May 1 through Sept. 30.

The agency’s Northstar and Homewood inspection stations would be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Thursday through Sunday, and closed Monday through Wednesday under the staff proposal. The two inspection stations would be open from May 20 to Sept. 8.
