Westrec Marinas to Manage North Point Marina
North Point Marina is owned by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). Since opening in 1986, the marina has been operated by the IDNR. This past summer, the IDNR put out a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the management of North Point Marina. Our company, Westrec Marinas, responded to the RFP and was chosen in December as the winning bid to manage the marina.
For customers with 2016 annual contracts, Westrec will honor rates and programs for 2016 in 2017. If you were not a North Point Marina customer in 2016, you can fill out an application at http://www.westrec.com/north-point-application/.
News Update – February 23, 2017
Westrec is thrilled to announce that we have reached an agreement on a 25-year lease for North Point Marina with the IDNR. We have also negotiated a reduction of the slip tax with the Village of Winthrop Harbor.
We will formally sign the agreement tomorrow and will take over the marina next week.
If you did not receive a copy of the contract at the meeting on Sunday, please reply to this email for a copy. We are hoping to send out invoices within the next two weeks. Remember, for the 2017 season we will be honoring the same rate you were charged in 2016, including any discounts. We have a great deal of work to do on the marina, so please understand that we may not have 100% of all services running on April 1st.
We have already begun to work with the town to get permits and licenses for the new pool and pavilion area, Ships Store (in the administration building) for beer, coffee, ice, snacks and various sundries, and are working to improve the public beach on the North end of the harbor.
We know that many of you have been concerned about the village slip tax. We are happy to tell you that there will be NO slip tax in 2017. In 2018, the tax will be 1% of your slip fee, which for most of you is under $35. We think the terms are fair and believe the town will be a good partner in the future.
We are excited to see you this summer, and will be sending out marina updates on a North Point Harbor Facebook page soon.
We appreciate your patience and are looking forward to making North Point better and more vibrant than ever.
