Marker Light Out

The marker light in front of our house on the St Johns went out a few days ago. One of the neighbors noticed and called the USCG and reported the light on St Johns Marker 28 was out. He was asked what the coordinates of the marker are. Duh. Obviously, the neighbor was less than thrilled with being asked the coordinates of the marker and as of this morning the light is still out.

Granted the St Johns isn't the ICW down by Miami but we do get both commercial and recreational traffic and sometimes early in the evening or early in the morning when it is dark. Worse, fishing boats come flying up and down the river at 40-50MPH sometimes in the dark.

Since the St Johns is an inland waterway, are the markers the responsibility of the USCG or the Army Corp of Engineers or even the St Johns Water Management District? Who should we be reporting the light outage to?
