Burlington boat launch filled with towed cars

Posted: Updated:

Boaters in Burlington looking to get out on the lake may be out of luck this weekend.

The Coast Guard Boat Launch is packed, but with towed cars and not boats. Burlington parking officials say they have been ticketing and towing hundreds of cars across the city during street sweeping. Officials say 132 cars have been dropped at the boat launch which is blocking the space needed for trailers to offload boats.

"I have left a note for tonight asking them if they do have to take any cars down there to be more mindful that people need to get to the access ramp and try to consider that as they leave the cars," said John King, Burlington parking manager.

King says if cars in the boat launch parking lot aren't claimed by Monday they will be towed again to an impoundment lot.
