Charge for Boat Ramp Usage Began October 1st, 2017

At the meeting of July 25, 2017 the Commissioners of Charlestown voted in favor of adopting an update of Ordinance #9 to the following:  The charge to launch a boat at the municipal boat ramp will be $10.00 a day or $25.00 for a yearly pass for in state boaters and $75.00 a year for  out of state boaters.  The daily fee will be collected by an honor box system located at the boat ramp, or by using the ParkMobile App (.35 fee charged by the app).  Yearly passes will be sold at Town Hall during regular business hours ( Mondays through Thursdays 7:30 to 5:00 and Fridays from 7:30 to 4).  The passes are good for the calendar year ending December 31, of the year purchased.  Free parking is available in Lot B on Louisa Lane.

ParkMobile comes to town!

The Commissioners recently voted to b e g i n  a relationship with ParkMobile to collect fees for parking. This is amobile app. We have four different zones in town. Y o u r p a r k i n g permit stickers will preclude you from getting a ticket if you park in any of the spots in town that are in the ParkMobile zones. One of the zones included is the boat launch. You may now pay your fees for daily launch by the honor box or by using the ParkMobile app. The fee for launching by the honor box will remain at $10.00 cash or check. The ParkMobile cost is $10.35. Your yearly stickers are still honored as well.
