Post Falls Wants No-Wake For River

Item: Post Falls joins fight for no-wake zone/KREM

More Info: It’s been a complaint of some homeowners along the Spokane River for many years, now, the city of Post Falls says it also wants a no-wake zone on a small stretch of the waterway. Balancing boater’s rights and land protection has always been hard and time-and-time again, a no-wake zone has been denied by the county. “We estimate we’re losing about a foot of shoreline a year,” said Post Falls City Manager Eric Keck.

Question: Would you support a no-wake zone on the Spokane River in the stretch that includes Kiwanis Park (south end of Highway 41/Ross Point Road)?
