And they say, “Nobody get a free ride”
Bradford Rec. District 2059 Landowners NOW do…

Our most recent Proposition 218 that passed allows for all landownders on Bradford to ride the ferry for FREE.

Ferry hangers have arrived.  They are available by personal pickup or via mail.  Please call Angelia at (925) 209-5480 or email angelia_bradford@sbcglobal.net and advise on how your would like to arrange to get your hanger.

The District historically has never issued hangers and this will be the District’s first attempt at doing this.  The Board will be putting together the rules and regulations for the ferry hangers.

Once the Board has finalized the rules and regulations, we will mail them, email them and post on the website.

The rule that you get a hanger for every person listed on your Grant Deed.  You may transfer the hanger to another vehicle, however, you must be in that vehicle.

FERRY HANGERS

The Board of Directors approved cost-free ferry passage for District landowners, with issuance of a placard for all owners of record.  This is to ensure that the cost-free ferry benefit is only utilized by those individuals who actually own land and pay the District’s assessments (which fund the Ferry).  If your spouse or family member is listed as a joint tenant, tenant in common, or the tenancy is by the “entirety” or the property is specifically listed as “community property,” then your spouse is automatically entitled to a ferry pass at this time.

Relatives, friends, contractors, or other persons related to/invited to the island by landowners, but who are not landowners of record are not entitled to a pass.  Passes are not transferable.

The Board will be discussing an issuance and enforcement policy, including requests for passes for spouses/registered domestic partners at the next meeting, to be held October 6.  You are welcome to attend to voice your concerns, or if you prefer, e-mail and I will be happy to share your views with the Board at the meeting.
