SHERIDAN — The public is invited to attend a series of public information meetings regarding proposed Wyoming State Park and Historic Site fee increases expected to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2021.
The public meetings, which can be accessed either virtually or by phone, will provide important information about these proposed changes.
“All revenue collected through visitor fees goes right back to Wyo Parks’ sites to fund operation/maintenance costs, new projects, site enhancements and resource protection” Wyoming State Parks Deputy Director Dave Glenn said. “Current revenue shortfalls and necessary budget reductions will require an increase in revenue in order to keep state parks and historic sites open, staffed and maintained. Fees collected from visitors do not fully fund Wyo Parks operations. Wyo Parks also relies on general fund dollars and funding from other sources such as grants, motorboat gas taxes and donations.”
Public information meetings will be held via google meets and via phone under the following schedule.
Nov. 2, 5-6 p.m.
