It'll be a little cheaper for boaters to set their anchors in Greenwich waters this summer.
The Board of Selectmen voted Thursday to reduce the annual mooring fee charged boaters who are lucky enough to have a coveted mooring along the town's coastline.
The annual fee was cut from $100 to $75 for the 2013 boating season.
The selectmen took the action after listening to several town officials including Board of Estimate and Taxation member Robert Brady discuss how much money in mooring fees remain unspent. The money is used for boating and water-related expenses including supplies for the town's harbormaster.
According to Greenwich Budget Director Roland Geiger, there is more than $40,000 in unspent mooring fees.
The unanimous vote came after the selectmen heard that boaters already face other fees for using town marine facilities including a $75 annual use permit, and varying fees to either dock or store their boats at town facilities.
