yes, it is tax dollars hard at work... that lake brings in much revenue for this community. Also, Lake Oroville is a working lake, the Dept of Water does not have maintain the boat launchs... most people think it's the State Parks Dept that maintains them, they don't, it's DWR. But the State Parks is who collects the monies. If Lake Oroville stops becoming a revenue making park, they will close it.

Much thanks and praise should be paid toward the folks that made that boat launch happy. I am grateful finally someone at the State level gave something toward our community.

Just think of all the property tax dollars lost. Make the state pay county property taxes on all their property!

The state fees for any tickets written around the lake goes to the County, not the State.
