Police Jurors give nod to recent request by concerned citizens in Logansport …granting
$15,000 to help toward construction of first boat launch/floating pier on Sabine River on Logansport side.

Area residents using the Sabine River/River Front Park in Logansport as a go-to place for events , casual boat-riding excursions or fishing any time of the year have had only one place to actually put a boat in the river ,,,and that was on the Joaquin side of the river.
