maintenance

LBL Forest Service

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area officials are looking to the public for ways to cope only half of their normal maintenance budget. Tonight is the first of a series of public meetings on maintenance budget cuts.  LBL spokesperson Jan Bush says the meetings will help Forest Service staff determine how to distribute the park’s limited resources.

“We get ideas from everybody ‘cause this is a serious thing that we’re going through, we’ve lost 50% of our maintenance budget, that’s quite a bit, and we don’t see it improving anytime soon.”
