Yosemite Returns To Normal After Gov’t Shutdown Ends

YOSEMITE — National Park Service employees will be back on the job in Yosemite National Park now that congress has agreed to fund the government for a few more weeks.

All NPS services were halted on Saturday morning, including the staffing of the Visitors Centers, entrance gate fee collection and information, campground reservation management, trash collection, and maintenance of such necessities as public toilets.

Law enforcement, emergency medical services and essential personnel were kept on the job, and facilities operated by Yosemite consessionaire Aramark remained open.

Law makers in Washington, D.C., have only funded the federal government until Feb. 8, and whether they can pass a budget by then and keep another shutdown from happening, is anybody’s guess.
