[Adopted 5-19-1992 (Ch. 100, Art. I, of the 1991 Code)]
A. 
One or two people should man the marina facility during the week. Employees should be expected to do the following:
(1) 
Welcome boaters.
(2) 
Help boaters to tie up.
(3) 
Answer basic questions about Fulton.
(4) 
Collect applicable fees.
B. 
When employees are not busy, they should be responsible for light maintenance work, such as cleaning bathrooms, weeding lawns and general housekeeping of the area.
C. 
Training. Employees should receive a one- or two-day orientation of what is expected of them on the job, including instructions on how to tie up a boat, etc.
A. 
Seasonal. Seasonal fees shall be as follows: $25 per foot for boats owned by City residents; $30 per foot for boats owned by nonresidents. There is an additional charge of $0.75 per foot for water and sewer and electric.
B. 
Daily. Daily fees shall be as follows: $0.50 per foot without water and power; $0.75 per foot with water and power.
C. 
Payment of seasonal fees; permit procedure.
(1) 
The seasonal fee for residents and nonresidents must be paid in advance by mail or in person to the Clerk/Chamberlain's office.
[Amended 12-1-2009 by L.L. No. 6-2009]
(2) 
The suggested format for accepting seasonal permits is as follows:
(a) 
An ad shall be published in the local newspaper(s) as follows: "Seasonal permits available for the Fulton Marina on the Oswego River. For application, write to or apply in person at the Clerk/Chamberlain's office, City of Fulton, 141 South First Street, Fulton, New York. $25 per foot for residents; and $30 per foot for nonresidents."
[Amended 12-1-2009 by L.L. No. 6-2009]
(b) 
Permit applications will be sent to applicants and accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. A sample permit application is attached.[1]

Editor's Note: Samples of the marina seasonal application and the marina permits are included as attachments to this chapter.
(c) 
Applicants must bring in their proof of boater registration (registration has boat size on it) with their seasonal check.
D. 
Payment of daily fees; issuance of permits.
(1) 
Permits should be distributed upon arrival. Boaters should be advised that fees are payable at 6:00 p.m. each evening. This is the most effective way to ensure that only boaters who stay overnight are assessed the fee.
(2) 
Fees can be collected by the staff, using carbon, numbered receipts so that there is a checks-and-balance system, or be made payable at the Lock III Restaurant.
(3) 
Enforcement can be done by having the staff check which boaters have permits the first thing each morning.
(4) 
If the Lock III Restaurant is going to issue permits, appropriate signage should be posted, as follows: "Overnight permits (6:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.) available in the Lock III Restaurant."
(5) 
Signage. There is a sign notifying boaters that there is a fee charged; however, it should be clearer than the current signage. The sign in place states "MARINA: BY PERMIT ONLY (arrow) 598-4504 for permit." This sign is misleading because this gives the impression that people must have a presold permit. The new signage could state: "WELCOME TO FULTON: Overnight Docking $_____."
