COOPERSTOWN – The new floating docks at the village’s Lakefront Park, under consideration since the Flood of 2011 damaged the traditional fixed docs, are complete, and Village Clerk Teri Barown reports slip renters may begin parking their boats there as soon as they wish.

The docks cost $120,000, but Village Trustee Ellen Tillapaugh, who chairs the Parks Committee, said the rates – now $500 a season for village residents; $1,000 for non-residents – were raised $50 to cover the expense.  “Our rates are still the best on the lake,” said the trustee.
