Galveston Wants to Collect Trip Fees

Posted on May 3, 2006 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

GALVESTON, TEXAS — During the next two months, the board of trustees of the Galveston Wharves will meet with hotel owners, limousine service operators and competing cruise ship parking lot operators to come up with a consensus on how tariffs will be assessed and collected. The tariffs were put into effect in January 2005 by Port of Galveston officials who wanted to put into operation a plan to make thousands of dollars every year to offset the costs of maintaining its two cruise ship terminals.

The port will also try to deal with the sticky issue of collecting what it says are unpaid drop-off fees totaling $225,883. For example, the port claims that Galveston Limousine Service is at the top of an 11-company “delinquent account” list at $82,700, followed by EZ Cruise Parking at $23,160. At the bottom of the list is the Holiday Inn Express at $2,588.
