Westwego council votes to allow airboats

Airboats will return to Westwego. Monday night, city council members approved new guidelines to allow airboat operation in the waterways around the city.

The new guidelines mirror a similar ordinance already in place in Jefferson Parish.

Airboats were banned in 2005 following a series of deadly accidents.
