U.S. Bankruptcy Court declines to halt new Marina at Belton Lake

Published Sept. 10, 2015

FORT WORTH, Texas – The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that a motion for a temporary restraining order brought against it by Holiday Marina’s Inc. was denied yesterday. 

The court found that there was no substantial likelihood of success on the merits for the claims made by Holiday Marinas, Inc.  The Court also rejected arguments that USACE could not close the marina, and directed Holiday Marinas, Inc. to provide necessary safety certifications to USACE before the marina can be reopened.     

These court rulings allow USACE to proceed with its competitive lease of a commercial concession (marina) site at Belton Lake, proposals are due today by 3 p.m. central standard time. The Corps will not impound vessels that remain at the Marina and are not in violation of life, health or safety standards before Nov. 30, 2015.

For more information, please contact the Belton Lake Office at 254-939-2461 or the District Public Affairs Office at 817-886-1306.
