To restore the Marina Security to current service levels, monthly license fees would have to increase by $1.50 per foot for Residents and Nonresidents, increasing fees to $10.50 per foot and $12.50 per foot, respectively. Boats in the City Marina range from 18 feet to 45 feet in length; therefore, the $1.50 rate would provide sufficient revenue in the event the average boat length decreases. The per boat fee increase would range from $324 to $810 per year. Any increase in the fee would put the City of Alexandria near, or at, the top of the fee range in this region.
