Annual fee a better solution for harbor parking

There are few if any harbors around the United States where daily car parking is free. And no doubt that a $10-a-day parking fee (The Maui News, Aug. 30) would be a hardship for boat owners and their crews.

Perhaps one possible solution is for the Department of Land and Natural Resources, for a fee, to issue parking tags similar to those issued for the handicapped. The annual fee will be substantially less than that paid on a daily basis. That seems fair.
