Kirkland considers ban on Juanita Bay boat parties

The Associated Press

A crackdown on noisy boat parties is on the mind of the Kirkland City Council.

The council is considering an ordinance that would ban the practice of “rafting,” that is linking, more than two boats together.

Kirkland Police Lt. John Ashlip told KIRO-FM sometimes in the summer on Juanita Bay dozens of boats congregate and tie together with a lot of drinking and loud stereos late into the night.

The new law would also restrict sound from audio systems.
