Pump-out policy review

The Bight Management Board voted 7-0 Wednesday to postpone a proposal to install new rules for live-aboards, including enforcement of sewage pump-out.

Assistant City Attorney Larry Erskine advised the board to let him and Marina Manager Mark Tait iron out the policy before sending it to the Key West City Commission.

At issue Wednesday were questions such as how often should pump-out take place and how to enforce a new law.
