SECTION 110
Licenses
Navigation (NAV) CHAPTER 37, ARTICLE 8
§ 110. Licenses. The local governing body of each county or city in
this state may grant licenses for keeping ferries in their respective
counties and cities, to such persons as the respective local governing
body may deem proper, for a term not exceeding five years. No license
shall be granted to a person, other than the owner of the land through
which that part of the highway adjoining the ferry shall run, unless the
owner is not a suitable person or shall neglect to apply after being
served with eight days' written notice from such person of the time and
place at which he will apply for such license, or having obtained such
license, shall neglect to comply with the conditions of the license or
maintain the ferry. Every license shall be entered in the book of
minutes of the appropriate local governing body by the clerk; and a
certified copy thereof shall be delivered to the person licensed. When
the waters over which any ferry may be used shall divide two counties or
cities, or a county and city, a license obtained in either of the
counties or cities shall be sufficient to authorize transportation of
persons, goods, wares and merchandise, to and from either side of such
waters.
