Delays in store for boat stickers

New invasive species stickers that are now required on all boats that launch in Idaho, motorized or not, have sparked such demand that the state Parks Department is now reporting big delays in getting all the orders filled. “The sheer number of orders that IDPR is receiving is preventing the 7-10 day turnaround originally projected,” said Renee Iverson, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation registration manager. “IDPR is working diligently to process orders as quickly as possible.” The parks department has notified law enforcement about the delays, and people who have ordered stickers but not yet received them can show their receipts from online orders or copies of checks as proof that they’ve complied. The stickers cost $10 for boats registered in Idaho, $20 for those registered elsewhere, and $5 for non-motorized boats, which aren’t required to register. Only inflatables less than 10 feet long are exempt.

The stickers are meant to fund Idaho’s fight to keep invasive species including quagga and zebra mussels out of the state. Click below to read the full announcement from parks; click here to order a sticker.

SIGNIFICANT DEMAND CAUSES INVASIVE SPECIES STICKER
ORDER PROCESSING DELAYS

IDAHO (Friday, June 5, 2009) – The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) released today that the significant number of online and mail-in order requests for Idaho Invasive Species Fund (IISF) stickers are taxing the fulfillment process and causing delays.

The new law, that took effect in April, requires all vessels that launch in Idaho to obtain and display IISF stickers.

“The sheer number of orders that IDPR is receiving is preventing the 7-10 day turn-around originally projected,” said Renee Iverson, IDPR Registration Manager. “IDPR is working diligently to process orders as quickly as possible.”

Idaho law enforcement officials been notified of IISF order processing delays.

Customers that have purchased online or by mail can use a copy of their check or printed receipt of online payment as proof of contribution to the IISF until stickers arrive by mail.

Vessel owners still in need of IISF stickers can purchase online at www.parksandrecreation.idaho.gov, by mail or at any Idaho State Park or regional service center. A complete list of state park locations and service centers are also available online.
