About the Department
Department is a service-oriented organization providing boater
assistance, emergency response, code enforcement, and facilities
maintenance for the waterfront and the waters of Morro Bay. This
Department provides a high level of service in community education
(water safety programs), public outreach, and community relations for
boaters, beach users, and waterfront visitors.
Department is an Enterprise Fund and operates from revenues generated
from the Tidelands properties we manage. Revenue received from tenant
rents, boat fees, waterfront tideland leases, and other sources is put
back into preventative maintenance, capital improvement, parking
services, staffing, public safety, special events, and public education.
The Harbor Department is also involved with resource management for the City's beaches and natural resources including coordination with State and Federal regulatory agencies.
