7-day beach driving permits end

Published: Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 12:11 PM.

Driving violations on the beach would cost $500 for a first offense and $750 for a second.

Racing on the beach or pulling skiers behind a vehicle would result in a $500 fine on first offense, $750 for a second offense.

Other violations would bring a fine of $250 and $400 for first and second offenses, respectively.

Commissioners will decided at their next meeting whether to approve a recommendation from a citizens committee examining rules and regulations for the beach.

The recommendation was that those ticketed for not having a permit would have seven days to come in and pay the fine. If they did so, the second $250 of the fine – the permits costs $250 - would be adjusted down, proposed to $100.

“We are trying to walk the line between protecting the resource and allowing the public to utilize that resource,” Yeager said.
