State and local officials are collaborating on a management agreement for Snow Canyon State Park in Washington County but much work is left to be done, said Utah State Parks Director Fred Hayes.
"We are talking and on the right track working on a memorandum of understanding as required by the Resource Management Plan," Hayes said Thursday. "We are looking to make sure we have all the wording right and that we aren't violating any laws."
State Rep. Don Ipson, R-St. George, came up with a bill early this year that would have transferred management of the popular park to local officials. He said he was reacting to complaints from his constituents about limited access at the park and a required entrance fee just to pass through Snow Canyon.
