Proposed county rules aim to limit crowds of boaters flocking to Bird Island

“This is not addressing the root cause of the problem,” said Mary Oakes, who frequently uses the lakes and favors a crackdown on lawless boaters. “The problem is the overwhelming gatherings of boats and personal watercraft, most demonstrating a complete disregard of boating safety laws, basic respect and conservation decency combined with copious amounts of alcohol. This has resulted in an ongoing spectacle of public drunkenness, blaring music, filth and trash and unsafe and frequently obscene behavior.”
