Update on Rez user fee

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District issued this brochure concerning the lake user fee.

I don't know much about administration of the Reservoir, but where did the money for boat infrastructure previously come from? Or have there been no repairs or upgrades to the infrastructure for the last 50 years? I'm just curious who paid for infrastructure in the past.

They were paid for by the leasehold fees paid by Reservoir Homeowners. These facilities have been used by people that have paid nothing for their maintenance and upkeep. It's about time that the load be shared by the people benefiting.

Wondering why such watercraft as Khayaks and Canoes are excluded. Those people often use the ramps and facilities too.

Also notice the requirement to register a boat for rez use within 30 days of purchase of the boat. Besides being nuts, this is unenforceable. First, if I buy a new boat with intention of fishing Enid and Washington and a year later decide to fish the rez, that's when I would register it for rez use.

Third: In case I missed it in the pamphlet, who will enforce the law? PRVWSD with only a few watercraft or the MDWFP who would be tasked with enforcing a law which has no real attachment to their agency?

Lastly, if a boat dealer has a transferrable sticker why should not the fisherman who owns three boats? Only one at a time can be launched or use the facilities at any one time whether you're a dealer or a commoner.

I tore up a trailer at a PRVWSD ramp a few years ago. They refused to pay for the damages. Three weeks ago I advised them of a dangerous pier on their property with broken boards which presented a public hazard. Their response (although they later fixed it) was a tacky reply that 'You may want to form a group to partner with us to raise funds for such purposes'.

In summary; I don't trust these people any further than I can throw a gator.

@ 10:45 I totally agree. As repairs were previously paid for by leaseholders, why is it now illegal to give them free access. Maybe I'm missing something in the interpretation of the brochure, as it relates to "services." What are the services that are provided?

not sure if I am wording this correctly, but I think the LEO folks might understand.
is the user permit a primary offense or just an add on when probable cause or reasonable suspicion prompts a stop on the water? Does this mean rez patrol will stop at my personal dock and look and see if I have user permit affixed to my watercraft? Will the wildlife and fisheries officers enforce this user fee requirement?

How is it that it would be an illegal separate class to give the leaseholders an exemption to use public facilities, but it's not considered as making them a separate class by them being the only ones that pay a lease fee currently that's used to maintain those facilities?

Anonymous said...

Because they are lesees. See how that works? As stated above, the lease fee does not go toward maintenance of facilities. Please pay attention.

Next Topic: Radar. You will all recall how anxious the Rez guys are every year to get radar approved. Thank God and George Flaggs this never worked. They'll eventually get it and then every damned one of us better watch the hell out and stay clear of the Rez.

If you think the lease fees aren't going to maintenance you are kidding yourself.

You know what? Thanks to the free market, since we actually have a free market, we'll create a truly constitutional republic website. One with democratic ideals in which all people can relate. It's so obvious that you have sold out to the highest bidder rather than protecting the people. Lazziez fair capitalism indeed.

We'll form a new coalition that keeps the average consumer informed, elections be damned. Even the conservative republicans have turned against you. Do not confuse this criticism with " modern liberalism". The only thing you're interested in is a fake mirage of what Mississipians truly desire, which is far off from what the tea party hate group desires. That train left the station a long long time ago - because people with common sense you left behind, You know damn well that our only faux saving grace is Vick slater - yet, you refuse to accept 'reality' .

I know all to damn well what could damage our current gov. ,socially in this godforsaken slave owner state,and I am under no gag order.. If you people think that sex Ed is a liberal plot, then you have another thing coming at the polls - also, not all liberals/ democrats are black - God forbid we let the illusion disappear. You're doing N. Miss commentator a huge favor ( as if). The only thing you have left is the religious right and phil bryant. Good luck.


Welcome to the true rebellion that you wish you had under your grip. We fight for the people. Not citizens United, nor Al sharpton, or the mega church.

What in the name of all that's holy is 11:40 attempting to say? I thought at first it might be Tom Head babbling on. But, even Tom Head isn't that stupid. After three readings (two last night and one this morning) I gave up.

Speaking of a 'train leaving the station', that guy's train is pulled by one wacky switch-engine!

I think the goons that run PRVWSD are way out of control. They illegally force rental property owners to pay $100.00 per year "inspection" fee AND a $100.00 per year "rental license" fee. If you refuse to pay it they have worked a deal with ENERGY to block power to the house until you pay the bribes. Even if the house is occupied they REFUSE to connect power until the "gods of PRVWSD" give ENERGY permission to do so. In regard to water, if you don't sign an agreement agreeing to pay any and all unpaid water charges let behind by a tenant they refuse to turn the water on at the house until you sign the damn thing. That office is huge mess and is run by 1/2 wits.

Floating Chicken Boxes said...

What is the purpose of a hundred dollar 'inspection fee'? But, wait, you said the office is run by half-wits and others have posted that Sigman's shit don't stink and he's the most honest guy this side of Jesus Christ.

@ 4:35: As an owner of numerous reservoir rental homes, I understand the concern about $100 fees. I get annoyed, too, for the inconveniences. Many rental homes are 25+ yrs. old, have aged wiring and no GFCI recepticals. Some outlets don't even work properly and many aren't even grounded. Cheap landlords don't care about smoke detectors, holes in walls, water leaks, rotting siding, hand rails on decks or electrical boxes hanging off the wall. That's why inspections are necessary. They keep our rents and property values high. I dread having tenants move, but for some reason my homes rent immediately, each for over $1200-$1600 /month without complaints. As far as the "Overlay District" rules and fines are concerned, tenants pay the fines. The fines are steep and I've yet to see anyone be fined twice for the same violation. :) Yes it's hard nosed, but we need all the help we can get to keep our county "the place so many wish to live." Anyone who slams Rankin County, you're either jealous, or you break our laws.

@4:35 PM....You sound like a PRVWSD shill. With over 25 years in the rental business I do not need a lecture on GFCI plugs or smoke detectors from you. For every one slacker slum lord there are probably 1,000 slacker homeowners that are doing more to damage property values that rental agents are. I am neither jealous nor a law breaker. I am a property investor that is tired of 1/2 wits breaking the law while posing as heavy hands goons extorting money in the name of the 'bigger cause". If you are so happy with these illegal fee's you are welcome to pay mine.

@ 6:52...Many homeowners do trash their properties. That's exactly why the Overlay Laws were imposed. I definitely hit a nerve mentioning the landlords responsibility for safety and upkeep. I've watched your crews do their sloppy cosmetic rehabs and foundation repairs. A cheap paint job, cheap carpet, cheap appliances and then rent it out cheap, with no concern for the neighborhood. You are the reason we all have to pay these fees. Take your business empire to another county where you will be appreciated.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
