Once again it’s that time of year and the 2019 boating season will soon be upon us. The Todd County Sheriff’s Office Water Patrol will soon be placing buoys, doing boat inspections and will begin patrolling area lakes promoting and enforcing boat and water safety. This is the perfect time to inspect your boats insuring your registration is current and you have all the proper safety equipment on board. Another reminder is that if you plan on having a temporary water structure such as a swimming raft you must fill out and return the structure permit form which is now available on the Todd County website, also available on the website are the Event Permit forms which are needed if you plan on organizing and holding an event such as a fishing tournament. The Todd County Sheriff’s Office hopes all of you have a happy and safe 2019 season on our waters.
