Don't expect Tamarack refill anytime soon


MEADVILLE — ‘Productive meeting’

“This was a very productive meeting and we got a lot of good ideas,” said Fuller. “We want to see the project done as soon as possible.”

The PFBC representatives have placed their trust in the Friends of Tamarack and like organizations to submit suggestions and ideas for what the community wants to see outside of the dam rehabilitation.

While the PFBC is simultaneously working on other lake projects, Barner is confident the commission can work together with local organizations to improve Tamarack’s progress.

“It sounds like four years is, number one, a long time and, number two, very optimistic,” said Meadville Mayor John C. Soff. “Let’s hope government agencies can work together in a cooperative and expeditious manner so it doesn’t have to take that long.”
