The Waitaki District Council has resolved that the mooring fees at Holmes Wharf will remain at the same level as 2012/13.
The fee per mooring for ratepayers is $300 and stands at $500 for non-ratepayers.
At the council meeting on Tuesday, Councillor Kevin Malcolm moved the resolution that rate payers remain paying less, stating it was the locals who were spending money in the area.
‘’The out-of-towner brings a packed lunch and spends very little in the area,’’ he said.
Ratepayers already subsidise the harbour from paying their rates, an amount of circa $71 per year.
