Ohio national park sites stung by budget cuts

DAYTON, Ohio — Nine U.S. National Park Service sites across are Ohio are feeling the sting of federal budget cuts.

The sites are trying to determine how to trim the budgets without ruining the experiences of hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit every year. Some are reducing staff, consolidating management or closing on Sunday.

The Dayton Daily News reports the National Park Service sites in Ohio attracted more than 2.6 million visitors in 2012.

When the federal government cut $34,440 from the budget of the James A. Garfield National Historic Site in Mentor, leaders closed the park on Sundays, which is one of busiest days of the week.

Other sites have also canceled programming and will cut back on seasonal employees.
