Wyoming State Parks & Historic Sites Prepare for Budget Cuts

Sep 24, 2012

Like a lot of state agencies, Wyoming State Parks and Historic Sites will likely need to find a way to make up revenues lost from proposed budget cuts.  Administrator Dominic Bravo says they are leery about raising fees, but are looking at some other options. "We’re going to try to figure out through partnerships, try to find alternative funding, of course corporate relationships, anything we can to make sure we are doing our best job to serve our customers and visitors.  Whatever we can to still meet our mission.   It’s not easy." Bravo says they’ve been able to generate more revenue for State Parks in recent years which have allowed them to add trails, showers and other amenities.  He doesn’t know if state budget cuts will stall those efforts.
