PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) – The Jackson County Board of Supervisors has voted to take back the law it passed earlier this month that would allow only one boat per home outside the county’s four cities.
The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1l2Mpqn ) reports that the county officials on Monday rescinded their approval of the Planning Commission’s Nov. 2 one-boat-per-yard recommendation.
Supervisor John McKay had been in favor of the initial recommendation. He says he still wants the commission to consider a different way to limit the number of boats owned, saying some people are running businesses by having numerous boats in their yards.
Resident Irby Tillman, who was in the audience during the meeting, told McKay that if he did not want to see the boats in people’s yards, he should look in the other direction.
