According to Larry Goldzband, the executive director of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, Google doesn’t have the proper permits to keep the mystery barge at its current location in the San Francisco Bay. To solve the issue, Google needs to move the barge into a permitted area, reports The Christian Science Monitor.
The area where Google is keeping its mystery barge is being leased to it by the Treasure Island Development Authority. This Authority charges the company $79,000 a month to use the area and is currently looking into acquiring the correct permits to allow the mystery barge to stay where it is, The Christian Science Monitor notes.
Google’s mystery barge was previously rumored to be a floating data center. However, Google has since revealed that the barge is a mobile showroom that will allow it to give people a sneak peek of its newest technology.
