No Wake Zone declared on the Rock River for the 4th
The City and Town of Beloit get a "Slow No Wake" restriction for the 4th of July.
After consulting with officials from both municipalities... Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden decided to enact the ordinance from 8:30 PM to Midnight as a safety measure.
Spoden says the area under the restriction becomes very chaotic and dangerous due to the large number of boats on the Rock River for the 4th of July fireworks celebration. Spoden says there will be boat patrol units on the river during the event.
