A long Fourth of July holiday weekend means that many people will be enjoying their favorite outdoor activities: The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Commissioner is alerting boaters to potentially dangerous conditions during the upcoming holiday weekend. Also, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) reminds everyone who participating in outdoor recreation to take precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday.
New York state lawmakers, local leaders, and family members gathered at a boat club along the Hudson River Wednesday. They were there to urge the governor to sign boating safety legislation, and to honor the memory of a local resident who died in a boating accident.
Elected officials in New York who represent portions of Westchester County will gather this afternoon to call on the governor to sign boating safety legislation, one year since a local resident drowned following a boating accident.
