Officials from the southern Black Sea towns of Nessebar and Sozopol have agreed to cooperate in making the municipalities owners of the ports.
Several hundred citizens of Nessebar have joined a sign-up, demanding that the currently state-owned port be transferred to the municipality.
The news comes just weeks after the government decided to turn the ports at the Black Sea towns of Pomorie, Ahtopol and Tzarevo municipality-owned.
The ports have been owned so far by the state-owned Port Infrastructure.
The decision of the government turned the sites into private property and transferred the ownership to the municipalities to manage and develop them.
