I sent a congratulatory email to him this morning and made him aware that there has been some unrest among BFTers about the seeming decline in services and quality of maintenance in some parks. I suggested that he monitor our boards or at least either make info posts or send emails I can post on the board to keep us informed...or to respond to complaints or requests. Hope to hear back from him soon.

Utah State Parks Director Fred Hayes has named Jeff Rasmussen to fill the position of deputy director of the state recreation agency.
Rasmussen has worked for Utah State Parks for two decades and has been serving as the northern region manager over 16 of the 43 state parks.
Rasmussen also worked as the manager of Yuba State Park after serving as a park ranger at Palisade and Antelope Island state parks.
Rasmussen earned a degree in geography and natural resource management from Brigham Young University.
"I enjoy expanding and improving recreational opportunities for our visitors and hope to continue to do so at all state parks," Rasmussen said in a prepared statement.
The deputy director position became vacant after Hayes was named director in April.
