New Boat Storage Ordinance in Effect

The City Council has passed an ordinance regulating the parking and storage of boats on residential lots.

Under the new ordinance boats with an overall length greater than twelve feet (12’) must be wholly enclosed within a garage or securely placed on a boat trailer that can be used to legally transport the boat on a public highway.

Boats on trailers may be parked on residential premises provided the boat and trailer are parked within the owner’s property line and the trailer is in a good state of repair and maintained in such condition as not to be unsightly. Grass and weeds must be maintained in a neat and orderly fashion beneath the trailer, so as to not exceed six (6) inches in height.

A violation of this ordinance is punishable by a fine of not less than $10 nor more than $100 for each day the violation exists.
