Valley County

Update: May 10, 2019 - Valley County commissioners decided to scrap a proposed waterways ordinance that would have bumped the no-wake zone from 300 to 1,000 feet on area lakes. The McCall Star-News reports that commissioners decided not to vote on the proposed ordinance at their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, instead choosing to start fresh on drafting a waterways ordinance to better regulate motorized boat use in the region.
