Good 'finally sunny skies' Wednesday morning....

The NYS DEC Public Participation Specialist Tom Panzone has contacted me this morning to pass along (to those interested) about tonight's meeting in FREEPORT, and further information on the upcoming meetings with fishery consultant George LaPointe:
================================================

People could sign up or join the DEC FB if they want to (click the LIKE button on FB). Its a way to keep informed on what the Department does.


This week kicks-off a series of meetings DEC is holding across the State’s Marine and Coastal District to gather feedback from key stakeholders about the current commercial #fishing licensing systems and to assist us in reviewing and revising the program. These meetings offer an opportunity for the commercial fishing industry to ask questions and provide insights on the current licensing system, information that will help us improve it.

The next meeting will be held tonight,

By the way since I was asked on why the meetings have been set up on these dates is with George LaPointe who is a resident of the State of Maine, and drives down to New York to moderate a group of meetings during a week. He saw first hand on how bad New York traffic is on a daily basis when he arrived at the Kingsboro meeting a few days ago.

Don't miss out!
