Meeting to be held to discuss the Muncy Boat Launch

A group of concerned individuals have created a group on facebook, “Rebuilding the Muncy Boat Launch.” The individuals of this group share concerns over the closing of the Muncy Boat Launch which was closed in July 2016. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission felt the launch was unsafe and posed a hazard to users because of dropping water levels and a large sandbar that exists between shore and water. The sediment can be hazardous to individuals by getting their feet stuck as it can be several feet deep.

The group is looking for repairs to be made so that the boat launch can reopen or to have it moved elsewhere, but remain in the general area. A meeting is scheduled to be held on February 1, 2018 at Trout Pond Park (1935 Route 405 Highway, Muncy, PA).  This is located between Muncy and Hughesville. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 pm.

State Representative Garth Everett, PA Fish and Boat Commission Executive Director John Arway, Commissioner Eric Hussar, and Paul Urbanic with the PFBC Bureau of Engineering are scheduled to be at the meeting.
