bank of the Dike Road, my own physical condition, actions of other people, including but
not limited to, other mooring permit holders. I HEREBY ASSUME ALL OF THE RISKS
OF STORING MY DINGHY ON THE DIKE ROAD AND ALL OTHER RISKS ARISING

maintained or controlled by the persons/entities being released, or because of possible
liability without any negligence of the persons/entities released.
I certify that I am physically fit, am fully capable of climbing/walking on the rip-rap bank
of the Dike Road and to do all things relating to use and storage of my dinghy on the

assume full responsibility for any risk of bodily injury, death or property damage arising
out of or related to the Hudson Boat Mooring Area, whether caused by the negligence of
Releasees or otherwise. I acknowledge that this Accident Waiver and Release of
Liability form will be used by the City of Hudson and that it will govern my actions and
responsibilities as a boat mooring permit holder.
In consideration of my application and the City allowing me to moor my boat at the

hereby take action for myself, my guests, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of
kin, successors and assigns as follows:

Mooring Policy & Procedures
Updated 4-23-13; Updated 11-15-2018
Boat Mooring Policies established by the Park Board are as follows:
1. Boat Mooring Permit Application. The mooring application must list and be signed by all owners of the boat
intended to be moored. The application shall include evidence of ownership of the boat. When more than one
owner is involved, the application must designate one managing owner to receive all official communications. In the
event the insurance policy or evidence of ownership lists names other than those designated on the application, the
application may be rejected.
Applications must also include a signed Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity
Agreement.
Alternates will be ranked in the priority according to the address for the designated managing owner provided on
the application.
All moorings will be for personal use, not commercial use.
2. Proof of Insurance. Each application shall include proof that liability insurance is in effect for the full boat
mooring season. Copy of policy to be submitted with the application and shall include the names of all owners. If
insurance information submitted at the time of application changes, the boat mooring permit holder shall provide
updated insurance information within 10 days of the change. Consequences for non-submission of required
insurance: Failure to timely provide current and correct insurance information may result in loss of the boat
mooring permit.
3. Boat Registration. Each application shall also provide a copy of the appropriate state registration or U.S. Coast
Guard Certificate of Federal Documentation. If registration information changes during the boat mooring season,
the permit holder shall provide updated registration information within 10 days of the change in registration.
Consequences for non-submission of required registration: Failure to timely provide current and correct boat
registration information may result in loss of the boat mooring permit.
4. Priority for Drawing for Available Mooring Spots. Guidelines for drawing with priority as follows: (1) City of
Hudson residents, (2) Hudson school district, (3) St. Croix County, (4) Washington County and (5) others; when filling
openings. Any renewed alternate applications maintain their position on the alternate list under each category of
the priority system.
5. Mooring Assignments. The mooring assignments will be available to the public as long as the craft does not
endanger boats in adjacent mooring positions. Complaints are to be filed with the Director of Parks and Public
Works
Grandfather clause allows the one long boat that has been moored for years to be moored at the east end of our
mooring area with written application to be made no later than March 1 of each year.

the mooring fee for the season plus $15.00 administrative costs.

buoy to be used must be a U.S. Coast Guard approved buoy that is white with a 3” reflective blue band with white
vinyl bumper.

limited to 30 feet in length unless approved by the Parks and Public Works Director before approval of the mooring
application.
10. Dinghy Storage and Specifications.
Dinghy Storage: Each mooring holder will be allowed one dinghy that can be stored along the Dike Road
during the mooring season. The City shall designate five areas along the Dike Road bank. A tie down area will be
provided by the City. Mooring holders can secure their dinghies with a chain and lock at the specified tie down
area as noted on the dinghy tie-up map.
Dinghy Specifications: The dinghy shall be no more than 60 inches in width and no longer than 10 feet in length.
The dinghy must meet the U.S. Coast Guard safety standards and shall be cream or white in color. Canoes,
kayaks, or any other types of watercraft not specified will not be allowed.
Any mooring holder that does not comply with the dinghy storage requirements and/or specifications will be
notified of the non-compliance and be ordered to correct the issue immediately. The mooring holder will be
responsible for any and all costs incurred by the City to remedy the non-compliance.
11. Mooring Area. The City will provide and maintain U.S. Coast Guard approved marking buoys around the
mooring area.
12. Removal during July fireworks. All boats and dinghies shall be removed from the mooring area and the dinghy
storage area by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the July fireworks. If not moved, the boat will be towed from the area or the
dinghy removed from the dinghy storage area at the owner’s expense. (Note: This is effective starting with the 2002
season by order of the U.S. Coast Guard.)
13. Vacant Mooring. If mooring is not in use/or to be used by June 1, written explanation shall be given by the
mooring permit holder to the Director of Parks & Public Works. Usage of the moorings will be checked periodically
by the Parks Department. If the Parks Department observes a mooring is vacant for more than two (2) consecutive
weeks after June 1, and the permit holder has not provided the Director of Parks & Public Works with a written
explanation of the absence, the permit holder shall be notified by e-mail or certified mail that their permit is null and
void unless the mooring is put into use by the designated permit holder within five (5) days of receipt of the letter.
14. Boat Decals. All moorings, boats and dinghies shall be marked appropriately with decals as provided by the City.
15. Improper Mooring. If it is determined that any sailboat, dingy, or buoy is not in its assigned position, the City
may correct such placement at owner’s expense, having given reasonable notification.
