Boaters swamped by new fees in Wrentham

Posted by Ralph Ranalli January 29, 2008 07:32 AM


Parking fees for the Lake Pearl boat-launch lot off Woolford Road will go up by more than 200 percent this year.

Selectmen last week voted on the changes, which Town Administrator Jack McFeeley said are designed to more fully fund the town’s annual $15,000 to $20,000 in clean-up costs at the lake.

Parking stickers for residents will go from $10 to $35, with a 20 percent discount for senior citizens and those with disabilities. Non-resident stickers will increase from $20 to $75, with no discounts.
