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 (http://bit.ly/1zkVAmS ) 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.
