While "Procrastinate Now!" might be a humorous title for this entry, it will not be a laughing matter for the owners of Hartwell Lake properties on January 1st!
You see any Hartwell Lake shoreline permit holders who have a permit that was issued more than one year ago and have not installed a dock by Jan. 1, 2010, will forfeit the dock portion of their permit!
If the property owner fails to install the dock by the deadline, then they will lose the boat dock portion of the shoreline use permit for six months.
If you miss the deadline, you can reapply, but you just might find out that the rules for securing a dock permit have changed in the past few years. Some people in certain circumstances might also lose their dock permit permanently. And when it comes to the value of a Hartwell Lake property, whether or not there is a dock in place makes a world of difference. Both in the price and the amount of people interested in it.
Anyone with any questions should call Sandy Campbell, chief ranger at the lake at 1-(888) 893-0678, ext. 315.
