I saw this on tv last night and thought it was quite disturbing. Want to run this by you to see what you think.
The Pearl River Water Supply District is considering sticking those who use the reservoir with additional fees. They want you to purchase a decal for your boat that will cost $35 for boats less than 30ft and $50 for boats over 50ft for a year. They also propose a $10 decal for only a few days. They say this will help pay for sandbar and ramp maintenance, channel markers and law enforcement.

If you would like to voice your concerns, they don't have an email address but you can send a letter to the general manager, Benny French PO Box 2180 Ridgeland, MS 39158.
There's a reason it's called huntin' and fishin' instead of killin' and catchin'
