CONWAY HILLS, Fla. -- Orange County commissioners are once again taking up a controversial boat banning issue.
The question is: should residents be allowed to keep boats in their front yard or should they have to build a concrete slab to keep them on?
Right now, residents are allowed to keep their boats on their property, but that could change after the county's commission votes on Tuesday, WESH NewsChannel 2 reported.

If approved, the ordinance would put an end to big boats being parked out front. They would have to be parked out of sight. The smaller boats, 24 feet and under, may still be parked out front, but they would have to be parked on a concrete slab constructed next to the driveway. The rule states the slab must be connected to the driveway, and to the side of it, not in front.
