Tug Urger Meeting – September 18

2017 NYS Fair display. 

Read a September 9th Time Union article titled “State reconsidering fate of historic canal tugboat, other vessels,”  to learn more about a meeting scheduled on September 18th between the New York Power Authority and representatives from Preservation League of New York State, Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and Canal Society of New York State.

The meeting will examine “options” for the Tug Urger.

In addition to Tug Urger, this writer hopes attendees also express concerns for the ongoing care, upkeep and preservation of other worthy NYS Canal Corp vessels, especially Tug DeWitt Clinton.

If a Tugboat had fingers, they would be crossed for a positive outcome from this meeting.
