A local group of property owners is hoping to get some answers next week about the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ plan to raise dock and shoreline permits by more than $300, and as much as $660 in some cases, starting in January 2020.
The Hart County Property Owners Association has invited representatives from the offices of U.S. Sens. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and David Perdue, R-Ga., and from the offices of U.S. Reps. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville; Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville; Virginia Foxx, R-N.C.; and Jody Hice, R-Greensboro, to speak at an Aug. 19 meeting to discuss the fee increases.
Also on hand will be Sandy Campbell, natural resources manager from the local Army corps office as well as members of associations on Lake Lanier, Lake Altoona, Lake Strom Thurmond and from the South Carolina side of Lake Hartwell.
