CROWDS SATURDAY AFTERNOON APPEAR TO BE VIOLATING EXECUTIVE ORDERS, PENALTIES INCLUDE VESSEL FORFEITURE
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Don’t tell the boaters on Lake Boca, but there’s still a pandemic. There are also executive orders in place that make what you seem to be seeing in the photo above illegal. Yes, it’s Saturday afternoon in Boca, and those who apparently couldn’t care less about COVID-19 are out and about. The photo above a “live” look at Lake Boca as of 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 8, 2020.
As BocaNewsNow.com has reported repeatedly for months, enforcement on Lake Boca seems to be non-existent. It’s a unique jurisdictional intersection of Boca Raton Police, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. PBSO recently told BocaNewsNow.com that neither Boca PD nor FWC have asked for their marine deputies to assist.
Under current orders, boats must be at least 50 feet apart. Flotillas are prohibited. Penalties are strict as forfeiture of a vessel.
The scene above comes a short time after BocaNewsNow.com readers shared the photo below of what appears to be unrelated partiers on a boat not far from Lake Boca.
There are now at least 36,600 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Palm Beach County with 929 deaths.
