Port McNeill council has given the first three readings to a new harbour rate bylaw.
Mayor Shirley Ackland says the goal of raising the rates is to create a reserve to cover maintenance for the harbour. She says they knows there was a lot of interest in what would happen to the rates.
Ackland says council received a lot of feedback and a lot of research was done to ensure the fees are in line with other harbours and will stay affordable for families.
