BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR NEWS SECTION !


WITH THE NEW YEAR CAME A NEW PROPOSAL FROM THE FOREST SERVICCALLED THE PROPOSED UPPER PROVO
WATERSHED RESTORATION  PROJECT,
THIS WILL INCLUDE A PRESCRIBED FIRE BURN BETWEEN UPPER SETTING AND NORWAY FLATS  (6,070 ACRES) OFF I-50,
SHADED FUEL BREAKS, JUNIPER MASTICATION, ALONG  WITH SEVERAL OTHER PROJECTS. THIS IS ALL PROPOSED AT A TIME OUR GOVERNMENT HAS NO MONEY.  I PERSONALLY FEEL THAT THE PUBLIC SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO CULTIVATE THE FIRE WOOD.
THUS, MAKING MONEY FOR THE FOREST SERVICE,  NOT SPENDING THE  TAX PAYERS MONEY.  THIS PROPOSAL WAS ALSO PUBLISHED IN THE PROVO DAILY HAROLD, NOT THE LOCAL PAPER'S WHERE THE LOCALS COULD HAVE  SAY.


 



NOTE;


WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THE FOREST SERVICE ON THE MIRROR LAKE HIGHWAY FEE PROGRAM THAT RENEWS IN 2014. WE HOPE TO GET THE ONE DAY PASS BACK IN LIEU OF THE FORCED 3 DAY MINIMUM PASS THAT WAS

FORCED ON THE PUBLIC!

  


PLEASE GO TO OUR NEWS SECTION FOR UP-DATE

THE FOREST SERVICE HAS ANNOUNCED A PROPOSED PROPOSAL.
