"We've had massive community support for this, basically bringing the Bay back into the public's hand."

That from West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater Monday, after the District got a Licence of Occupation from the province for Gellatly Bay, meaning houseboat owners have 30 days to get their floating devices out.

"We have the W1 water zone, we have a Memorandum of Understanding with Westbank First Nation. Our bylaw staff with the assistance of the RCMP will begin notifying the owners directly, as well, notices will go out in the mail."

Findlater says if the boats aren't moved within the 30 day period, they'll be towed out of the area at the owners expense..
