Meetings rescheduled in Grant, Owen on proposal to lift boat motor restrictions

-A A +A

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Two public meetings have been rescheduled on a proposal to lift boat motor restrictions at small department-owned lakes in Grant and Owen counties.
Affected lakes, new dates and meeting locations include:
 
Elmer Davis Lake, 7 p.m. (Eastern), Monday, July 28, Owen County Cooperative Extension Service, 265 Ellis Hwy, Owenton.
Corinth Lake, 7 p.m. (Eastern), Tuesday, Aug. 5, Corinth Community Center, 315 Owenton Road, Corinth.
 
Currently, boaters cannot use a motor larger than 10 horsepower on these lakes. The proposal would lift the horsepower restriction, but only allow larger motors to run at idle speed on these lakes. Idle speed restrictions would be strictly enforced. Boat motors that are 10 horsepower or less could continue to operate at any speed.
The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission approved the proposal at its meeting in June. The new regulation will move to the legislature for consideration once the meetings are conducted and public comments are received.
Meetings are also being held concerning several other lakes which would be affected by this proposal. Those lakes, dates and locations previously announced include:

Beaver Lake, 7 p.m. (Eastern), Thursday, July 24, Emma B. Ward Elementary School Cafeteria, 1150 Bypass North, Lawrenceburg.
