PBSO HAS THREATENED ARREST, FINES, FORFEITURE FOR NON-COMPLIANCE WITH BOATING EXECUTIVE ORDERS
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — While beach cams are showing empty beaches — as required — across Palm Beach County, the Lake Boca Cam is showing problems. Several BocaNewsNow.com readers have sent photos with emails of concern that boats are too close together on “Lake Boca.”
Palm Beach County Executive Orders prohibit flotillas, boats being tied together, rafts being tied together or paddle boards being anywhere near each other. All vessels must be at least 50 feet apart. PBSO has made it clear that fines, asset forfeiture (the police will take the vessel) and jail time are all possible for violators.
Lake Boca is often a jurisdictional question between PBSO and Boca Raton Police. It is unquestionably, however, patrolled by Florida Fish and Wildlife Officers.
We’ve reached out to Boca PD and PBSO to see what, if any, enforcement is ongoing.
