Here’s to mud in your eye

Attached is a photo of the public river access on the Upper Delaware River at Ten Mile River taken last week in midsummer, July.
It is a total mud pile and has been for many years.
It’s embarrassing to both residents and visitors alike when you think that public funds were spent many years ago to improve existing New York river accesses for accessibility, aesthetics and safety.
Please see www.bit.ly/TRRwaterfront and www.bit.ly/riverdraftplans.
What happened to the plans? Are they in a museum under lock and key?
What this access desperately needs right now is a simple concrete pad so that river users can easily access the river instead of being sucked up and sinking up to their waists in primordial soup.
Please. Forget the bells and whistles.
A heavy concrete pad might be a simple improvement so that boaters and others can safely utilize one of the most heavily used river accesses on the Upper Delaware River.
Thank you.
