The final bridge has been crossed and sprint boat racing will be held in East Wenatchee over Labor Day Weekend.
By unanimous vote, the Douglas County Commissioners voted to approve the City of East Wenatchee’s request for a special use permit to hold a sprint boat race Saturday, September 4th. The City’s application had asked for the permit to cover two race dates, in September of this year and July of 2011, but Commissioners voted to accept only the single date in 2010. “I feel the City of East Wenatchee has the opportunity between now and July to file for the conditional use permit…so I feel comfortable voting in favor of the one date this year,” said Commissioner Mary Hunt.
