The City of St. Augustine, Fla., has submitted a proposal for a new city ordinance that would limit anchoring within city limits to ten consecutive days. The ordinance would require that after 10 consecutive days, a vessel would have to move to an approved mooring field or marina or outside of city boundaries for at least one full day before being allowed to return.
In response, BoatUS is encouraging boaters from the area and those who travel to speak up about how the proposed ordinance could affect them.
“The state is now asking for feedback from boaters on this draft local ordinance for St. Augustine,” said BoatUS Executive Vice President Margaret Podlich in a press release. “However, since it’s a pilot program, it’s really important for anyone who wants to anchor in Florida to give the City feedback.”
