It's been a long time since the Becky Thatcher has been a functioning business, and it's been almost three months since Marietta City Council gave it's final approval to an ordinance authorizing the removal of the boat.

However, it may be a little longer before the boat finds a new home.

City Law Director Roland Riggs says since then, a complaint has been served to the owners requesting the payment of back-rent.

The owners must either deny or admit to the complaint by early July.

Riggs says the owners will also have the opportunity to raise any legal defenses that might be available.
