Perhaps the Only Basic problem has been the Lack of information that has been Given to the Public about the scope of this said William m Barnett who took Over the Park Post left vacant earlier this month by the Surprise resignation of or. John m King. I think the program has gone a lot faster than the Public thinks it has Barnett told up in an exclusive interview. I Thill it has fio reasonably Well. A s a problem thai the Park commissioners were worried about thai we need politically speaking to have he Parks actually going because Here was a lot of Money Given by the legislature to build these Parks and they really want to get something out there to show the he continued. The 40-year-old former state agricultural and Industrial Board official said at this stage most of the development program has been the planning engineering the master plan on the Parks none of which shows up to the Public. There s been a lot of red Park commission chairman Bob Ashley of Hazelhurst said after announcing King s resignation that the c o m m i s s i o n h a d r u n i n i o dissatisfaction Over implementation of the new must million Dollar Park development program authorized by the 1972 legislature. There has been some dissatisfaction within the commission because we have not moved fast enough with the development of Parks and he said. We have ?5 million a year to spend and we Haven t done Ashley said the program provided for the issuance of a maximum million in Bonds Over a five year period with million ceiling on the amount of Bonds which could be issued during any one year. But he said the commission did not blame King for the slowness in spending the funds. Garnett said he thought Ashley was just reflecting the commission and Hie governor s feeling. They re just anxious to Sec the Park program being developed. I think they Felt perhaps the building program was t going As fast As it could be but had nothing to do at All with or. King s leaving. The Only slight dissatisfaction there might be within the Park commission that i can Garner is that there was t so much red we could get things going Barnett added. "1 think they la be More satisfied Over the next the new Park director pointed out that under he five year million Parks development program authorized by the 1972 legislature the commission could have let out million by the end of the current fiscal year ending june 30 for improvements at 25 state Parks and tourist Sites. Well actually go a couple or three months beyond that in getting the to said revealing that Only million to million has been up Cal so far. Bui Barnett also noted that the 1974 legislature had authorized an acceleration in the expenditure of Park development funds so that the program could be completed in four years rather than five. So we re Elliree to four months behind schedule As far As the Money is he said but As far As being Able to spend All the Money within that four year period of time wisely and correctly and doing the Best Job with it Well be ahead of schedule. Hopefully More than the million will be he said. The More we get into it the More need we can see for a greater program. You be got to remember that the state Park system was built Back in the Days of the depression. Since that time there s probably been less than million spent on capital improvements for. Parks until 1972.in effect we re starting from Barnett stated. He said much of the red tape involved in getting the development program off he.
