Lake Murray Homeowners May Pay Dock Fee: Chapin, SC Real Estate News

The more than 10,000 homeowners with docks on Lake Murray may have to pay a "dock fee" according to an article in The State Newspaper that was published Friday May 1st. The dock fee could range between $25--$100 and would impact roughly 10,000 people that "own" docks on Lake Murray.

According to SCE&G the proposed fee is being looked at as a way to help offset the costs associated with water quality, fish habitat and protect scenery on the 47,500 acre lake. Since I currently am a homeowner on Lake Murray and thoroughly enjoy the scenery, fishing and boating on the lake this reletively small fee seems insignificant at first but when I think critically about this fee it seems to punish the very people that want to protect the lake the most. . .the homeowners.

If any fees are to be applied to individuals that enjoy the lake it seems to me that a fee should apply to everyone who enjoys the lake, not just the people with docks. I am sure there is a reasonable rationale for only applying the fees to homeowners with docks but as of today noone has been able to articulate why the fee only applies to residents with docks, not to everyone that enjoys the benefits of Lake Murray.

If you have not had the opportunity to get out on the water I would highly encourage you to do so as fast as possible. The water is brisk and feels great especially with the warm sun beaming down.
