Danbury Mayor concerned about Uber boat drivers on Candlewood Lake

The Danbury Town Park and some nearby inland state swim areas remaining closed during this hot summer has resulted in some unintended consequences.  Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says more people are staying closer to home because of the pandemic, so there’s increased use of Candlewood Lake. And an increase in litter.  While there's nothing illegal about using the lake, Boughton says he's gotten reports about Uber boat drivers running people out to the islands for $10 a ride.  They're bringing coolers, there's alcohol consumption and fights break out.  Boughton says it's been rough out there for enforcement.  He also discouraged people from swimming illegally in reservoirs and other private bodies of water.
