Gulfport Slip Rent

Q: Does the city harbormaster set slip rent? How is it determined?

A: Harbormaster Denis Frain conducts a rate study, which means he looks at other marinas to figure out what current slips cost and what the market will bear. Based on that information, he meets with the city manager and together they make a recommendation to the city council. City council has the final say on slip rent.
