. At a meeting Thursday, the district board also said the docks need to be brought up to code and the owners will have to pay fees of an undetermined amount.
The amount of the fees will be worked out in the coming months and the money that's collected will go toward improvements along the river.

The district is concerned about liability because the docks are built on their property.
