Lake Mary Wake Ordinance On April 14 Agenda For Middle Inlet
Issue Date: April 13, 2022
An ordinance to set "No Wake" hours on Lake Mary is on the agenda for consideration and possible adoption by Middle Inlet Town Board at its monthly meeting on Thursday, April 14.
At 6 p.m. the board will hold a half-hour public hearing to hear comments from the public on the proposed ordinance. At prior meetings there have been proponents of having no ordinance at all, which would set the hours as they are state-wide in unregulated areas, with no-wake rules in force from sunset to sunrise; as they are currently posted by the Lake Mary/Lake Julia Lake Association as no wake from 6 p.m. to 10 a.m. daily, or from 4 p.m. to 10 a.m. as approved by the Wagner Town at its meeting on Tuesday, April 12. Portions of the lake frontage and boat landings are located in each of the towns, and state law requires both towns to approve identical ordinances if it is to be enforced by state and/or county authorities.
The public hearing will be followed at 6:30 p.m. by the regular monthly meeting of the town board, and the agenda includes possible approval or denial of an ordinance setting Lake Mary "No Wake"hours.
Also on the agenda in addition to routine business are approval of a certified survey map for Lake Noquebay Shores, brought by H. Goltz Jr. and J&B Eastman; appointment of a deputy clerk-treasurer; setting date, time and price for Spring Clean Up; reviewing the fee schedule for the cemetery; problem properties, and setting a date and time for a meeting on updating town ordinances.
The evening's series of meetings will start with a Finance Meeting of the board at 5:30 p.m. This meeting is open to public attendance, but there is no provision for public comment.
