FWC seeks public input on boating regulations in Ormond Beach
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will hold a public workshop in Ormond Beach Dec. 14 to address vessel speed limit regulations.

Participants will discuss whether or not to further reduce vessel speed limits on the Intracoastal Waterway within Volusia County, particularly the area surrounding Highbridge Road.

The workshop will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ormond Beach City Commission Chambers, 22 South Beach Road, Ormond Beach, FL 32175.

The rules under review are in Florida Administrative Code 68D-24.144.
