The IDNR website is back up and running for Watercraft Registration renewals. The renewal website is https://www.il.wildlifelicense.com/vehicle.php?action=vehiclelkup. Owners must print the watercraft renewal receipt and submit it to the office as evidence of registration. Boat Slip Late Fee letters were sent to owners with an Association-licensed boat slip who had not paid their fees, submitted a 2018 Annual Boat Slip License, and/or submitted current insurance and watercraft registration by March 1.
The deadline to submit payment, insurance, and/or a Boat Slip License is Thursday, March 15. Owners who did not renew their registration when it expired 6/30/17 have been given an extension to Monday, March 19 to renew their Watercraft Registration and submit the renewal confirmation to the office. Payment and all other documents are due March 15.
Failure to comply with these deadlines will result in revocation of the Boat Slip License and forfeiture of the slip. The $100 Boat Slip Late Fee will be waived only if the registration confirmation shows a transaction date of March 1 or later. Any owner found to have already renewed prior to March 1 who did not submit their registration will owe the $100 Boat Slip Late Fee, and will be subject to the revocation and forfeiture deadlines above.
