Corps will delay Lake Lanier dock fee increases


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will delay an increase in permit fees for docks on Lake Lanier, following an announcement earlier this year about increases in 2020. Those increases were challenged by several legislators, including U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville.

The Corps will hold off on permit fee increases to do a national review of shoreline management fees, according to a social media post from the Corps’ South Atlantic Division.

The increases, announced in June, would have gone into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, and affected the Corps’ South Atlantic Division. Under the revised fee schedule, new dock or facility permits would have gone from $400 to $835, and re-issue permits would have increased from $175 to $835. 

In June, Collins, a Lake Lanier resident and dock owner, sent a letter to the Corps asking for an explanation for the permit fee increases. Then in August, he was included in another letter asking the Corps to justify the fee hike and suggesting that a gradual increase would have been better.

Collins said he was happy to hear that the fee increase is on hold.
