Workgroup Formed To Develop Abandoned Vessel Removal Program

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon State Land Board wants to find a permanent solution to remove abandoned boats. Currently, funding comes from waterway easements and other fees, but it isn't enough to cover the high costs of removing vessels. The Common School Fund is tapped to help cover the remaining costs, and that takes from away from schools. Governor Kotek has proposed nearly 19-million dollars in her budget to cover removal of current hazardous vessels. Creation of an Abandoned and Derelict Vessel Program would be responsible for removing future abandoned vessels.
