OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — The Garrett County Commissioners are considering a proposal that would increase the availability of boat rentals on Deep Creek Lake.

The board is set to consider on Tuesday a zoning amendment requested by the owner of the Lakeside Creamery ice cream shop. It would permit boat and personal watercraft rentals at his business and other locations that lack marina services.

Creamery owner Bill Meagher says he would only rent out watercraft. He would not sell fuel or boats, store boats or make boat repairs.

At least four businesses on the lake currently offer watercraft rentals from their marinas.

The county planning commission is recommending approval of the plan.
