In response to a complaint by a Danbury City Councilperson, the Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team started an investigation into an abandoned boat on a vacant city lot on Cross Street. The large boat was dumped there by someone and UNIT officials say the cost of disposing it would have been left on the backs of taxpayers.
But they recognized the vessel as having been previously stored in a commercial neighborhood. Security camera footage was reviewed to trace the timeline of when the boat may have been moved and by whom because the owner of the boat was unknown and registration wasn't available.
A truck was seen hauling it away, though the license plate was not identifiable, other parts of the vehicle were.
The boat was removed.
