Tolls for lock and lift bridge passage by vessels and use of locks and lift bridges
Canal (CAL) CHAPTER 5, ARTICLE 10
§ 103. Tolls for lock and lift bridge passage by vessels and use of
locks and lift bridges. 1. The corporation shall have the power to
impose tolls for the passage through locks and lift bridges by vessels
which are propelled in whole or in part by mechanical power, and to
collect such tolls by the sale of lock and lift bridge passes issued for
such periods of time as the corporation shall determine. Tolls for such
lock and lift bridge passes shall be established by regulation of the
corporation with the advice of the canal recreationway commission and
following no fewer than two public hearings at geographically dispersed
locations on the canal system. In addition, the corporation may provide
by regulation for the sale of lock and lift bridge passes by any other
entity, and may allow a charge for handling by such other entities not
to exceed one dollar for each pass. No tolls shall be imposed or
collected prior to the first day of April, nineteen hundred
ninety-three. Vessels owned by the United States, a state, or
subdivision thereof shall be exempted from the tolls authorized by this
section.

2. The use of locks and lift bridges by pleasure and residential
vessels shall not interfere with the use of locks and lift bridges by
public vessels. Pleasure, residential and public vessels shall have the
same meaning as defined in the navigation law.

3. Revenues realized from the imposition of lock and lift bridge tolls
shall be deposited in the canal fund.
