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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
