He says homeowners along the river have many problems with tubers and he’s hopeful that they can come up with a solution.

The council may consider a full ban or allow a recreation company to control tubing on the river.

The council will discuss the issue at 3:00 p.m. at the Whatcom County Courthouse.

No final decision on tubing will be made at today’s meeting.
