$540,000 Grant Approved for Boating Facility.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Boating and Waterways Commission (Commission) approved a $540,000 boat launching facility grant to the County of San Luis Obispo last Wednesday.

The grant will be used to repave and restripe access way and parking areas to the Santa Margarita Lake boat launching facility. Other improvements include a new fish cleaning station and a new solar power system which will replace overhead powerlines across the lake.

The proposed $945,000 grant to the City of Clearlake, for improvements to the Redbud boat launching facility, was held over to the next Commission meeting.



Grant and loan applications are submitted to the Department of Boating and Waterways and funding for approved projects is derived from the taxes paid by boaters on the purchase of vessel gasoline and the repayment of principal and interest on department-made loans.

 The department provides grants to a county, city, district or other public agency for the construction of small craft boating launching facilities and loans to local agencies for the construction of small craft harbors. These grants and loans require the consent of the Boating and Waterways Commission

Your site is just perfect for what I have written! Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!
