City Council Update on Dock Tax

Dear Newport Harbor Dock Owner,

Last night the Newport Beach city council voted 6-0 to amend the Dock Tax ordinance to reflect the terms of the lawsuit settlement. 2nd reading of the ordinance will occur at the April 8 council meeting and if passed, the amended Dock Tax ordinance becomes law. To recap, the amended ordinance;

  1. Gives dock owners a 10 year permit that is automatically renewable.
  2. The permit is renewable for 5 ten year periods. (50 years)
  3. Upon sale of the upland property, the buyer is guaranteed a pier permit upon application to the city.

I want to thank everyone that has donated and worked for the past 18 months to restore the equity to our docks that was stripped away by the original Dock Tax ordinance.
