Athens Boat Launch to be renovated
Nancy Kern reports for Columbia-Greene Media that the Athens Boat Launch is about to be renovated. The boat launch is owned and maintained by New York State, which will soon spruce things up. Athens Mayor Amy Serrago said, “It is a state park and is slated for renovation as part of the Hudson Eagles Recreation Area project.... This is the same initiative that funded the Coxsackie renovation.” The Athens Waterfront Advisory Committee has approved the renovation plans. Serrago said, “The last I heard was that our portion is next in line, with Hudson.... They are going out to bid on both at the same time. They tell me this is good news as far as the timeline goes. We are basically waiting in line.” Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
