Still No Decision on Alachua County Airboat Ban
In a public meeting on Tuesday, the Alachua County Commission agreed to postpone a vote on an ordinance that would restrict airboats from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. They plan to discuss the issue again at next month's meeting.
Several county commissioners want the ordinance to be re-written to allow the use of airboats during emergencies.
The meeting also allowed several residents to voice their opinion on the issue. Some feel the airboats make too much noise at night, while others think the ban will hurt local boating and alligator hunting businesses. The video on the right of this page features the opinions of two residents who disagree on the matter.
