A sign warns boaters of the no-wake zone along the St. Joseph River near the Benton Harbor Public Boat Launch in Benton Harbor. St. Joseph Township officials support a request from riverfront property owners to better mark the existing no-wake zone.

ST. JOSEPH — St. Joseph Township officials will throw their support behind a request to place no-wake buoys along a section of the St. Joseph River, but will wait until next month to take official action.

Trustees want to wait until some legal documents are in place regarding who will pay for the buoys and how the no-wake zone will be enforced.
