Town Signs Contract To Plow Yellowstone

WYDOT Plow

The Town of Jackson Monday approved a contract with Wyoming Department of Transportation not to exceed $71,000 to plow open the road from South Entrance to Grant Village in Yellowstone National park.  Mayor Mark Barron explains that while the money is actually coming fromthe valley’s tourism interests, the contract needed to be made with WYDOT through the town government. Barron says WYDOT has to contract with a government agency.  He says the money raised by the Travel and Tourism Board, the Chamber of Commerce and a group of small businesses will be transferred to the Town of Jackson to fulfill the financial obligation of the contract. Barron says similar arrangements have been made by the city of Cody for the opening of the East Entrance. Say’s Barron, “I think it is a great sense of Wyoming community and gateway communities to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks helping to get our parks open for the summer season on time.”  Funds for the opening of the South Entrance were approved by members of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce and the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board last week.
