After recent threat from boats, West Shore Road residents call for Belvedere to abandon bay agency

Angry residents of Belvedere’s West Shore Road are calling on the city to withdraw from the Richardson Bay Regional Agency, saying it has failed in its duty to keep runaway anchor-out boats from threatening their homes.
