Derelict Boats


At the council meeting this week, Councilman Boback stated that between the dingy dock and the derelict boat out in the back bay, that accounts for a large percentage of the homeless population. Maybe taking the dingy dock down would be a start. Long term planning though, why not pony up the funds to haul the abandoned boats away. So we know there’s a bunch of abandoned boats out there, we know that they’re used by homeless and vagrants. What we don’t know, but should assume, is the human health concern those boats pose. Who knows what goes on out thereā€¦drugs, assaults, untreated human waste.
