Long Meets with Corps Officials to Discuss Recent Decision Impacting Local Non-Profits

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Billy Long today met with Col. Courtney W. Paul and other members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District to discuss their recent announcement concerning cooperative management lease agreements.

“We need to find a solution to fix the Corps’ recent ruling on lease agreements and I expressed that to the Colonel today during our meeting. I believe the user fees will be managed with more efficiency and accountability if they remain in our local community. While we did not settle this issue today, I do appreciate the attitude of the Corps in working together to find a common sense solution,” Long said.

Earlier this month the Corps stated groups who made cooperative management lease agreements could no longer keep the user fees collected to maintain parks. This decision impacts groups like the Ozarks Rivers Heritage Foundation who manage areas around Table Rock Lake.
