Attention, all Lake Boon residents concerned with local rule and state law enforcement related to power boat operation–there will be an important informational meeting tomorrow night as part of the Lake Boon Commission meeting, Tuesday, May 17, starting at 7 p.m. in the Hale School Auditorium.
The Hale School is on Hartley Road, two blocks north of the Route 177 (Great Road) and Route 62 (Gleasondale Road) traffic light in Stow.
This public forum features discussion and presentations with representatives of the Stow Police Department and the state Environmental Police concerning Lake Boon boat safety enforcement regulations pursuant to GL C. 90B and 323 CMR 2
Power boaters on the lake for many years understood enforcement of laws and rules pertaining to water skiing, tubing, jet-skiing, etc., particularly relating to the distance required from shore, docks, swimmers for the above activities. However, recently there have been questions raised concerning the validity of these regulations. As a result, legitimate confusion has been expressed.
This meeting, convened by the Lake Boon Commission, will provide pertinent and authoritative facts presented by representatives of the Environmental Police and the Stow Police Department regarding these issues. Ample time will be allowed for those in attendance to ask relevant questions of these Public Safety representatives.
PLEASE attend and take the opportunity to understand fully what laws/rules on power boating will be enforced on the waters of Lake Boon in the 2016 boating season.
Also on the agenda for this meeting: Lake level update and review of drawdown and refilling of the lake, and information on the first weed treatment and ongoing plans for follow up treatments.
