Liberty Lake Welcomes Anita Eylar

in Community Spotlight/Featured/Government and Politics
Anita Eylar

Anita Eylar, Activities and Events Associate for the City of Liberty Lake, joined the staff in April 2019.

When asked what the responsibilities of her new role are, Eylar responded, “I help coordinate all the events and activities in the city, work on special projects, help the horticulturist with landscaping and gardening (I like that part a lot), and things I don’t even know about yet. I have a very flexible and diverse position that supports all the departments I work with.”

The position was filled by an intern last year. However, the city’s growth and increased workload prompted the need to create and fill the full-time position.

Eylar is looking forward to helping the city be successful in all its endeavors and growth. “I want to make a positive difference for the citizens, who are the core of the city,” states Eylar. “A city is made by its citizens and what they contribute to create a community. Every day is a new experience and there is such a positive energy here! I want to accomplish any work I can that will benefit the city and its citizens.”

The things Eylar likes most about the city of Liberty Lake is its old neighborhood feel, the safeness of walking the city streets and the opportunity in the city with the “parks, lake, trails, playgrounds, golf courses, library, recreation, community groups and activities, the list goes on and on,” she said.

Eylar wanted to be sure to say, “If you see me in a 50’s Willys pick up, or a Cancun blue Harley Davidson around town, wave hello!”

Muffler or Underwater Exhaust System Required on Liberty Lake

decibel guage

The weather is getting nicer and many of you look forward to spending time on the lake. This summer, you can expect to see much more of the Spokane County Marine Enforcement Unit on the lake as well.

Deputy James Ebel, Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Marine Enforcement Unit Coordinator, commented, “The Spokane County Sheriff Marine Enforcement Unit has the equipment needed to test the decibel level of any vessel while on the water.” He also mentioned that his department is very aware of the issues with the stand-up jet skis on Liberty Lake and “plan on spending much more time out there this summer.”

The following information was sent by Deputy Ebel for me to share with our readers.

This information can be located on the Washington State Legislature website:

RCW 79A.60.130

(1) All motor-propelled vessels shall be equipped and maintained with an effective muffler that is in good working order and in constant use.

(2) A vessel that does not meet the requirements of subsection (1) of this section shall not be operated on the waters of this state.

(3) No person may operate a vessel on waters of the state in such a manner as to exceed a noise level of seventy-five decibels measured from any point on the shoreline of the body of water on which the vessel is being operated that shall be specified by rules adopted by the commission, as of July 25, 1993. Such measurement shall not preclude a stationary sound level test that shall be prescribed by rules adopted by the commission.
