SACRAMENTO – The California Boating and Waterways Commission today approved a $631,000 grant for improvements to the County of Shasta for the Balls Ferry Boat Launching Facility.

The project includes demolition of the existing deteriorated ramp, construction of a new single-lane boat launch ramp with vertical curve and a pre-cast vault restroom, installation of a new boarding float, resurfacing of the existing parking area, new sidewalks and lightning, a concrete project credit sign, and low-maintenance landscaping and ancillary items.

Grant and loan applications are submitted to the California Department of Boating and Waterways and funding for approved projects is derived from the taxes paid by boaters on the purchase of vessel gasoline and the repayment of principal and interest on department-made loans.

The department provides grants to a county, city, district or other public agency for the construction of small craft boating launching facilities and loans to local agencies for the construction of small craft harbors.
