Re: Alachua county Airboat ordinance

i dont think it was premature. we knew they were going to change the ordinance, and we knew we were going to fight it also. what we need is the state legislators to amend the wording of the statue that says they can discriminate against airboats with a 2/3 vote. thats what we're working on now and t...
