Seasonal Dockage Fee Refund for 2020

            The municipality has changed the method for refunding a portion of the 2020 seasonal dockage fee.  All boaters who paid the seasonal dockage fee for 2020 will receive a 20% refund.  However it will be handled in a different manner for different circumstances.

            All boaters who paid the 2020 seasonal fee and are on the list for a 2021 seasonal slip will have their refund credited to their account and used to defray the 2021 seasonal dockage fee.

            Boaters who paid a 2020 seasonal fee but are not being offered a slip for 2021 at this time (i.e. boaters who were filling in for a bye, etc) will receive a cheque in the mail.

            All boaters who are winter storing their boat at the marina will have their refund applied to their winter store fee.  In some cases (like mine on A dock) we will owe a small amount ($316.25 – $282.19 = $34.06) due by the end of December.  In others, if the refund is greater than the winter storage fee, the excess will be in your account to help defray next year’s dockage fee.

            The municipality has determined that this method gives them the best traceability for their records. 

            They will be sending invoices for winter storage shortly so those boaters will have a statement of their account.  They will also be sending a statement to each of the rest of the boaters to show the refund in their account.

            The municipality has agreed that any boater who would rather have the refund now rather than in their account can apply in writing to receive a refund cheque.  The method to apply is as follows:

            Send an email to accountsreceivable@kincardine.caThe email must state that you are requesting a cheque for the Marina refund, and include your name and full address in the body of the email so that we can compare this to our records to ensure that the refund goes to the correct person.  Without this information the refund request will not be addressed.   Any request received after Monday, Dec. 7, 2020 will not be processed until January 2021.

            Hopefully everyone remains safe over the winter and returns to a better boating season in 2021.
