Suffield, CT Reaches Agreement with Southwick, MA for Lake Congamond Dock Fees
Suffield, Conn.: The Town of Suffield announces today a payment in lieu of dock fees agreement with Southwick, MA. The payment covers costs for maintenance, policing and public safety associated with the use of Congamond Lake by Suffield residents. Congamond Lake is situated within the boundaries of both towns. The five-year memorandum of understanding includes a $2,000 annual fee (to increase by $200/year) which encompasses yearly licensing charges for Suffield residential property owners whose dock(s), swim float(s), mooring(s) or buoy(s) are located in Congamond Lake. While the agreed upon payment relieves Suffield owners from their dock fees, town leadership emphasizes it does not relieve them from their obligation to register. The Suffield Board of Selectmen approved the initiative at its February 20, 2019 meeting.
