Where's Your Fee's Being Spent

Post by Jerry Seaver » Sun Feb 10, 2008 9:45 am

Here's a Pamphlet that the BLM has for showing where the fee money along with other funding was spent for the 06/07 season.

The deal with the Imperial County Sheriff (ICSO) was they got 30% of the gross for collecting fees.

The ICSO has given their notice to the BLM that they will not be collecting the fees after this season. See the notice if you are interested in giving the ISDRA visitors a better deal, http://www.americansandassociation.org/ ... hp?t=23718

Are they trying to make us feel guilty with the bottom section or something? To me, with the exception of law enforcement, none of that stuff should be funded or done out at the ISDRA. It's all BS pork.

Actually some of the items would have to be paid out of visitor fees if they weren't being paid from grants and items like the monitoring and admin. of the closures have to be paid by appropriated funds by law. We'll have to see but with the revamping of the OHMVR grant program, we should see more grant funds come to the ISDRA. Some of those items might be BS but the BLM is required to do them, they have no choice.

And, IMO, they have met less than 50% of the objectives required in the Cooperative Assistance Agreement between ICSO and BLM.

Those are your fee dollars lining their pockets.
