Governor Mead Praises YNP Plow Effort

Gov Mead

Governor Matt Mead yesterday thanked the communities of Cody and Jackson for rallying together to pay for plowing of the roads to Yellowstone National Park. That local funding will cover the cost of Wyoming Department of Transportation equipment and personnel to plow roads within Yellowstone’s east and south entrances. Mead said while he wanted to see the park open on time, he wasn’t about to use state money to bail out the federal governments shortfall. “This is an example of what this country needs right now – people working together,” Governor Mead said. “The federal government made cuts that would have shutout visitors for two weeks. Our towns of Cody and Jackson rallied to raise money and the beneficiaries are all of the visitors who want access to America’s first national park who will now have it.” Plows began clearing the road from Cody over Sylvan Pass to Fishing Bridge yesterday while another crew will begin clearing from South Entrance to Grant Village next Monday.
