JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11)—The City of Jeffersonville has order houseboat owners to move out of the Ohio River Marina.

While many of these boats have been there for years, the owners received a letter from the city giving them until the end of the month to leave the marina near downtown. Officials said the docks were a public safety threat.

The order followed a city council vote earlier in the month rejecting a financing plan for a $2.2 million marina overhaul proposed by Mayor Mike Moore.
