I spent some time at Riverside Drive Marina, Whangarei when I had my previous boat a couple years ago, and I still must be on their mailing list.
Received the interesting email today as per below:
By now most of you will be aware of the new NRC marine bio-security charge to all mooring licensees (includes marina berths, swing moorings & pile moorings). The invoices for this charge have recently be sent out.
Northland marinas (Whangaroa, Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, Whangarei & Riverside) are disputing this NRC marine bio-security charge.
The marinas are currently seeking legal assessment of the marine bio-security charge & will not pay these until it has been obtained.
The Navigation Safety Bylaw charges are not being disputed by the marinas & will be paid without delay.
If you have any questions, please give me a call."
