New rules for airboat operators

(WJHG/WECP) – If you operate an Airboat in Walton County waterways there are some new rules you’ll have to follow. Commissioners passed an ordinance at Tuesday’s meeting, setting the hours of operation from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, after some residents raised concerns about noise and environmental impacts. Some other concerns focused on wake speeds and wake zones, which commissioners said is a state issue.
