The Nevada Division of State Lands (NDSL) is proposing new regulation that will adjust the fees charged for piers and buoys lakeward of the low water mark. In October 2017, the NDSL had proposed a fee structure that would increase current fees for buoys by 1,000%, and piers by 2,000%.
TLOA strongly opposes the proposed fee structure.
Since Nevada has never adopted parameters for this type of use of sovereign land, it is vitally important that there be a robust analysis and proposal by TLOA in the coming months. TLOA continues to work closely with NDSL in order to help them navigate uncharted waters on this topic, and find the best approach for lakefront owners under the legislative authority. This process will conclude later in 2018, and we will keep you informed and updated on the issue and how you can participate.
