Town and County Says No To Plowing Funds

YNP Snowplows

While it had been discussed that Jackson and Teton County might consider pitching in to open roads in Yellowstone National Park for spring visitation, community leaders at a joint meeting of the town and county decided it was too costly a venture.  However, Mayor Mark Barron says there were other considerations as well.  Barron says for instance there were some concerns about having the WYDOT equipment up in the park if the pass were to slide. Meanwhile, Barron says efforts are being made to assure the public there is still much to see and do in this part of the state for people still planning their spring and summer travel plans.  Quoting Barron:   “Grand Teton National Park is open, Yellowstone will be open this summer – there’s a lot to do along the Snake River and Jackson Hole is open.  I think our Lodging Tax Board and the Wyoming Office of Tourism are going to do a good job of getting the word out.” Last week Governor Matt Mead told reporters that using state money to plow for the Park Service was not an option.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
