MOUNT HOLLY - The Mountain Island Lake Marine Commission will hold its second public hearing on proposed boat size restrictions on Wednesday, June 2, at Mount Holly City Hall, 400 E. Central Ave. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

The proposed regulations would ban from the lake any boat longer than 22 feet and pontoon boats longer than 26 feet. The commission would require other boats to purchase either an annual or one-day permit to operate on Mountain Island Lake. The permit fee has not been set.

Boats shorter than 26 feet and pontoon boats shorter than 30 feet would be exempt from length restrictions if they are registered by the N.C. Wildlife Resource Commission before the proposed regulation's effective date. If passed, the regulations would take effect Jan. 1, 2011.
