BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The image above is a mid-day Saturday look at Lake Boca. Despite outrage online at Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer’s Friday night executive order banning boats from dropping anchor in Lake Boca this weekend, people do seem to be obeying the order.
The annual Boca Bash — a mass boating event on Lake Boca — was set for this weekend. Event organizers canceled the event in an effort to follow social distancing guidelines. But that didn’t stop many from complaining, suggesting that they would boat anyway because it’s their “constitutional right.”
Boca Mayor Scott Singer Friday night issued an executive order, summed up by the City of Boca Raton:
“The City issued a No Anchoring Emergency Order prohibiting recreation vessels from anchoring in Lake Boca or any part of the Intracoastal Waterway 500 feet to the north or south of Lake Boca that goes into effect 12:01am April 25.”
Recreational boat ramps across Palm Beach County are closed by executive order, but nothing (seemingly) would legally prevent a boat owner who docks their boat at their home from accessing Lake Boca.
