California hands out boat-launch grants

The California Boating and Waterways Commission this week approved $1.25 million in grants for boating facilities.

The commission approved a $630,000 grant to the city of Coronado for improvements to the Glorietta Bay boat-launching facility, as well as a $620,000 grant to the Riverside County Parks Department for improvements to the Mayflower Park boat-launching facility.

Funds for projects are derived from the taxes boaters pay on the purchase of vessel gasoline and the repayment of principal and interest on department-made loans.
