New meanings for waterway markers

State marine board officials this month will discuss new rules for boaters and other water transportation recreationalists in Oregon.

Staff from the State Marine Board Office will take public testimony on "Uniform Waterway Markers," which are standard waterway signs and buoys that communicate official regulations and information to boaters.

They'll also discuss proposed changes to allow people to obtain a permit to place their own waterway markers. No final decision will be made at the hearing.

The meeting is set for April 17, at 6 p.m. at the State Marine Board Office, 435 Commercial St N.E., Salem.
