All unsightly and abandoned boats in the Halifax River within the city’s limits have been safely removed and on their way to the landfill. Removing more than 30 derelict boats has been a multiyear, collective effort between the Permits and Licensing division and the Police Department.
Following the boats’ removal, Permits and Licensing’s focus will shift to removing the nearly 40 dilapidated docks along the Halifax River and other waterfront structure issues. Damaged docks and submerged pilings can become hazards for boaters and can negatively impact property values.
