Please read the Proposed ordinance. By signing this petition you are opposed to the following ordinance. Link on the bottom of the page. This ordinance limits where boats can be operated on all Valley County lakes. The Ordinance calls for any wakes over 24" to be 1000' from shore. This will include almost every boat when accelerating to get onto plane. This also makes the Boulder Creek Arm a no wake zone. The penalty is excessive. GENERAL PENALTY. Any person convicted of a violation of any section or provision of this code,
which is designated as a misdemeanor shall be punished by a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars
($1,000.00) plus court costs and fees, or by imprisonment not to exceed six (6) months, or by both such
fine and imprisonment for each offense. If the action is designated by state law as a misdemeanor the
penalty shall be as set forth in state law. If the action is designated as infraction by state law the penalty
shall be as designated in state code. Any section herein not designated as a misdemeanor shall be an
infraction and the fine shall be one hundred ($100.00) with no imprisonment for the first infraction of a
specific charge, $500.00 for the second infraction for that same specific charge, and a misdemeanor for
the third citation for the same specific charge issued within one season. If a boater is cited for three
citations for the same charge, on Valley County waterways, in a calendar year, that boater shall also be trespassed from operating a vessel on the waters within Valley County for one year from the date of the
conviction for the third violation.
