Attendance at our 46 fabulous (and financially abandoned) Utah State Parks is booming. but state taxpayer funding for our 46 Parks has been decimated from 2008's $12.5 million to a paltry $4.5 million (2016).
Parks are not getting what they need. But the Department of Natural Resources (who is over the Parks) runs several money-losing golf courses. Query: Should the state privatize/sell state-owned golf courses or continue a $1,016,151 taxpayer golf subsidy taken from the state parks meager budget?
