In Summer 2023, the Slow, No Wake Zone buoys received a soft solar light puck to help visiting boaters navigate the zone better. Last year, we had some of our buoys slashed or punctured by vandalism. Each buoy costs Ross Township tax payers over $400. Report anyone who mistreats our property to Ross Township Police Department — don’t forget to report the MC numbers off vandalizing boats.
