Brunswick Tables Abandoned Boat Rules

Brunswick County’s board of commissioners tabled on Monday a proposed ordinance regarding abandoned vessels.

Commissioners said they needed more time to look at the proposed ordinance that would make abandoning a boat in county waters illegal, WWAY-TV of Wilmington reported.

The county sheriff’s office proposed the plan in a move to avoid or recoup expenses related to removing abandoned vessels. The proposed ordinance would allow the county to auction abandoned boats or dispose of them in the landfill and take legal action against owners for the removal costs.
