TRENTON (WWJ) – There’s a new marina in town. For the first time in almost a century, the city of Trenton is teaming up with Wayne County to operate the Marina at Elizabeth Park.
Sheriff Benny Napoleon spoke to WWJ Newsradio 950 about the new partnership.
“A shared vision an a shared responsible which, in these days, difficult times, partnering up is something that is absolutely necessary and important,” Napoleon said.
Said Trenton Mayor Kyle Stack, “With all the budgets being cut and that, we still want to be able to offer other services.”
Sheriff Napoleon wants to remind boaters to not drink and operate a boat. “If you blow .08 it’s considered impaired boating. If you blow .10 it’s considered operating under the influence which is the same as drunk driving,” he said.
Napoleon said all captains must take safety classes to get their boating safety certificates, and, remember — no personal watercraft is allowed on the water between sundown and sunup.
Elizabeth Park Marina is scheduled to open March 31.
