Glacier National Park Budget Concerns


With Glacier National Park right in our backyard, news about the Park is always of topmost interest. According to the latest released budget, the Park currently carries over $180 M in deferred maintenance. This includes improvements to the roads, trails, and plumbing in some of the older historic buildings (550 buildings are in Glacier National Park, 112 housing units).

Glacier National Park is not alone in the budget crunch. Other parks have fallen behind—Yellowstone especially, with the third largest deferment cost in the country.

Hopefully, the record tourism in the past few years is allowing for some needed renovations. More can be read in the recent article from the Flathead Beacon.
