Proposed changes to various fees charged to private businesses will generate about $70,000


JACKSON, Wyoming — Grand Teton National Park managers say proposed changes to various fees charged to private businesses will generate about $70,000 in additional money each year.

Under a proposal released early this month, private businesses operating in the park would be assessed a new graduated fee based on gross receipts in addition to an existing flat $300 administrative fee.

The changes would take effect in 2016 and are anticipated to bring in about $100,000 — a significant bump over the $31,000 received last year.

Donna Sisson is chief of business resources for the park.

Sisson tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide ( ) that most of the fee money will pay for administration of commercial use authorization permits.

Last year 91 businesses held such permits, which include things like towing services.
