Mooring ordinance program deadline extended

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission extended its deadline for local governments that have an interest in establishing mooring ordinances to participle in a mooring pilot program.

Local governments interested in the program have until the close of business Dec. 31 to send letters of interest to the commission.

Under the pilot program, the FWC will select five locations to work with local governments on the best way to regulate boats that anchor outside of permitted mooring fields. The program allows for local governments to establish and enforce FWC-approved mooring ordinances outside of a mooring field.

The five sites will be selected before July 1, 2011.

Currently, local ordinances for anchoring are unenforceable outside of mooring field boundaries.

Letters of interest can be sent via e-mail to anchoring.mooring@MyFWC.com or mailed to Tara Alford, FWC Boating and Waterways Section, 620 South Meridian St., Tallahassee, FL 32399.
