On Aug. 5, the Oregon State Marine Board received a petition requesting that it open rulemaking to prohibit the use of personal watercraft within the estuary of the Salmon River.
The marine board staff will be holding a public meeting where interested parties can learn about the petition and provide oral testimony or written comments on the petition proposal.
The meeting will be held on Sept. 9 at the Lincoln City Community Center, 2150 NE Oar Place, beginning at 7 p.m. No decisions will be made at this meeting. The marine board will decide whether or not to open rulemaking at their October board meeting in Astoria.
Written comments will be accepted via mail, fax, or email and can be sent to June LeTarte, Rules Coordinator, 435 Commercial Street NE, Salem, 97301, fax number 503-378-4597 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 30.
