Meeting To Discuss CPW’s Budget Problems

A meeting will be held Wednesday afternoon in Steamboat to discuss future funding for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. CPW is currently experiencing a significant budget shortfall that officials say may affect the agencies ability to manage Colorado’s 41 state parks. To help find potential solutions to the budget issue, CPW is looking for the public to provide ideas and feedback during Wednesday’s meeting. CPW’s Northwest Regional Manager JT Romatzke says the public will have to decide what’s important to them in terms of wildlife and parks management as more cuts and less opportunity are expected. The other option would be for the agency to find a way to increase operating revenue so they can manage at the level expected by Coloradans. The meeting will take place at 6 Wednesday afternoon, at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife office in Steamboat. For more information about CPW’s financial situation, click here.
