I am not a resident of Cedar Key, but I am a property owner and therefore a taxpayer. I am just finishing a six-week stay here in Cedar Key.
Abomination is a strong word not to be used lightly, but it is a just description of the noise and disruption caused by airboats running close to the populated areas of the city. The amount of noise has increased since last year. Not only is it a great disturbance to the people but also to the wildlife. The city should establish a ban on airboats within a mile of the populated areas.
I would suggest that many more people come to Cedar Key for the peace and quiet and to view the wildlife then come to ride airboats.
