Commissioners unsure about beach passenger ferry in Englewood

  • 2

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. -- A proposed ferry shuttling system in Englewood is meeting some resistance from Sarasota County commissioners.

At Tuesday's commission meeting, commissioners questioned how successful a private ferry would be. They worry it wouldn't be cost effective for the county.

The proposed ferry would travel between Manasota Key and Dearborn Street.

Supporters of the project say a similar ferry system in Venice has been successful.

A subcommittee is continuing to look into the ferry proposal.
