PA Senator Dan Laughlin visited the NE marina this past Tuesday. He was there with the PA Fish and Boat Commission and the PA Department of Environmental Protection discussing the problems of dredging and what could be done to open the marina this year. His comments are below:
On Tuesday morning, I met with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection at the North East Marina. Together we are trying to devise the best approach to dredge the marina basin and open the marina for the 2023 boating season.
I know this facility’s importance to the North East Community and am paying attention to the calls and concerns I am hearing from my constituents and I will continue to share updates as they become available.
All of your input at the township meeting and your direct contact with his office has had an effect and our legislators and state agencies are now involved and working on a solution.
