Milwaukee weighs docking time limits

Milwaukee officials are considering a law that would make it illegal to dock a boat for more than 24 hours along the Milwaukee River.

Alderman Bob Bauman told WTMJ-TV that the city has received complaints when boaters tie up their boats on restaurant docks or private docks for hours, sometimes days, and police can't do anything about it.

On Wednesday, the Milwaukee Public Works Committee passed an ordinance that would prohibit boaters from docking in one place for more than 24 hours. It also would allow police to ticket anyone docked on private property.

The full Common Council is expected to take up the issue Dec. 20.
