Recently, Town Council passed an ordinance changing the back bay into a Manatee Idle Speed Zone every month of the year instead of just for a few months out of the year. This ordinance came about after a group of engaged citizens championed the change to better protect the manatees that inhabit the waters around the Town. Town Manager Roger Hernstadt called the citizen’s actions a “model case” and a “good civics lesson” for how citizens and government can work together effectively.
