People with buoy permits should start making sure everything’s in order for the upcoming season. The Water Patrol Division will begin their annual buoy audit May 1st. the audit is designed to make sure the permit holder still owns the property listed on the permit. It’s also a chance to make sure the buoy is placed properly, marked correctly, and visible to boaters. Any questions from permit holders prior to the audit process should be directed to the Water Patrol Division at 573-751-5071. You can also email [email protected].
