Coast Guard Deems Keys Lighthouses As "Excess"

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

The Coast Guard is trying to pull the plug on some of its lighthouses in the Florida Keys.

According to the "Miami Herald," the Carysfort light off Key Largo, Alligator Light off Islamorada, Sombrero Light off Marathon, and the American Shoal Lighthouse off Sugarloaf Key have all been classified as "excess."

The General Services Admission will try to find a non-profit or local government group to take over maintenance of the lights.

If not, they will be put up for public auction.
