Minocqua boat launch fees slightly increase
MINOCQUA -
Going out on the water will now be a slight bit pricier in Minocqua.

The town recently raised the price of its boat launch fees.

The fees went from three to five dollars daily and from twenty-five to forty dollars annually.


Town Chairman Mark Hartzheim says they've been told in the past that the price was the lowest in the Northwoods.

"It was reasonable to raise it from three to five dollars and just help us pay for some of the expenses involved with maintaining these boat launches," said Hartzheim. "You've got piers here and you've got concrete pads and different maintenance that needs to be done around these. It all costs money."

They hope to raise an additional couple of thousands of dollars to go towards the upkeep of their five municipal launch sites.
