Sec. 9-5.02.   Purpose.
   The purpose of this Chapter is to address operating requirements for commercial boating, as defined herein, on local streams and rivers.  The Board of Supervisors recognizes that recreational use of the County’s streams and rivers includes the use of streams and rivers by rafts, kayaks, and other floating devices. It is necessary to manage commercial river use that includes rafts, kayaks and other floating recreational devices to protect the riparian environment and the safety, health, and welfare of river users and riparian landowners. The provisions added to the Yolo County Code by this Chapter regulate commercial river use in a manner that is consistent with the policies and purposes of the 2006 Yolo County Parks and Open Space Master Plan, as it may be amended from time to time.
