BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Readers are asking BocaNewsNow.com why Lake Boca seems to ignored by Boca Raton Police and Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Commission officers, all of whom are supposed to be enforcing the Palm Beach County Executive Order requiring boats to be no closer than 50 feet apart. Also in the order: no tying boats, paddle boards, kayaks or any vessel together. A look at LakeBocaCam.com at 1 p.m. on July 4th suggests that the order is being violated by multiple people.

Fines, asset forfeiture and jail time are all possible for egregious violations of the executive order.


The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, which is able to assist in patrolling Lake Boca, says no law enforcement agency has asked it to assist.
