ericmower is on a distinguished road
This is not a local municipality but a state law applicable to lakes, rivers and the coast. The only people forced out of their boats are in Chatham County. This is strange. I think the law was put in place to deal with homeless on rafts living on the Altamaha River. Now the DNR wants to run a few boat owners out of a bend in one tidal creek in Savannah area? Why are no evictions occurring in Brunswick where the Coastal Resources DNR office is located? I think someone must have some connections to the department and was tired of seeing some of the boats that sit at anchor there year round. It is incredible to interpret the law to make it impossible for marina owners to allow liveaboards. How can someone paying for a slip and pumping out without dumping in the rivers be a hazard to the marshlands of coastal georgia?
