Yesterday was the first day of collecting the ramp fee's at the boat ramp. This took almost (6) months of planning to get State and City Council approval, install the collection boxes and sign kiosks, and printing of all the forms necessary to operate the program. The program is both self-service and staffed by Asst. Harbormasters during the peak periods. The revenue generated from this program will all go directly to the maintenance, operation, and safety improvements to each of the boat ramps in Fall River.
