BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - City officials in Bay City want to slow down boaters through the creation of a no-wake zone on part of the Saginaw River near a multimillion-dollar development.

The Bay City Times (http://bit.ly/1ItnqRw ) reports the Bay City Commission has passed a resolution that calls on the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to consider a no-wake zone near the Uptown Bay City development. The department rejected a similar petition last year for the 1-mile stretch between the Veterans Memorial and Lafayette bridges.

Some boaters worry the waves could damage their boats that are docked at the development. Other boaters say it already takes too long to travel on a river that has no-wake zones elsewhere.

A hearing is expected to take place later this summer.
