UPDATE:  At the Public Hearing, the Town Board re-affirmed their decision to repeal the Jet Ski/Water Skiing Restrictions, however, it will not take effect until December 31, 2018.  An Ad Hoc Water Safety Committee will be appointed to address the issue and make recommendations to the board for possible action.  Therefore, THE 10AM-5PM RESTRICTION IS STILL IN EFFECT UNTIL DECEMBER 31st.
