The City of Daytona Beach’s Permit and Licensing Division and the Daytona Beach Police Department have worked together to remove more than 30 derelict boats in the Halifax River within the city’s limits over the last few years.
According to a release, all unsightly and abandoned boats have been removed from the river and taken to the landfill as of Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
Following the boats’ removal, Permits and Licensing will focus on removing the nearly 40 dilapidated docks along the Halifax River and other waterfront structure issues, as damaged docks and submerged pilings are hazardous to boaters and can negatively impact property values along the river.
