Icicle River Tubers Asked to Tone Down the Party

May 17, 2011


living along the Icicle River in Leavenworth are getting increasingly irritated by large tubing groups who

trespass onto their property and upset their bucolic lifestyle. They’re now asking Chelan County

Commissioners to do something about it. Steve Hair reports . .(CLICK ICON ABOVE FOR AUDIO) A group of homeowners

approached County Commissioners this week with their grievances following a meeting they had last week with the

Sheriff’s department. Lt. John Wizemore with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Department says he’s

been working with the company that runs the river tubing excursions. He’s approaching it from a public

education perspective hoping to head off problems before they happen downstream . . Meanwhile Commissioners say

they will ask the prosecutor’s office to look into what the County can legally do to regulate the river

tubing activities.
