The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded a two year contract extension to the concessionaire that operates New Melones Lake Marina.
Shasta Lake Resort will continue to run the marina through December of 2014. The company rents out houseboats, kayaks and paddle boards. It also operates the marina convenience store.
After 2014, the BOR announces that it will issue a long-term concessionaire contract, likely for about 10 years, and there will be a competitive bid process. Only a short term contract was offered this time around because BOR is in the process of completing a management plan that is examining the expansion of marina services.
