Local News

ST. GEORGE (ABC4 News)- The City of St. George and three other groups are joining in to help fund basic services at Zion National Park.

Earlier this month the city, along with Washington County and two other groups, wrote checks to keep the park open. Saturday the groups donated more funding.

St. George Mayor Jon Pike said this extra money will keep the park open for a few more days.

The funding will help with trash pickup, crowd control, and restroom maintenance.

Saturday marks 22 days since the government has been shutdown. That’s the longest in United States’ history.
