Sheehan said at this point, the Chelan Ranger District is asking for comments and input before making any decision on whether to allow the construction of the barge facility or not."CLICK HERE" for Audio
Sheehan said that if they do decide to allow this project, it would be used by Intalco for several years before the Forest Service would be allowed to turn it into a year round boat launch.
Sheehan explains why public comment is such an important part of this process.
Sheehan can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 509-682-4900 for any questions or input on the proposed barge facility at Fields Point Landing.
