State employees gathered outside the Fall Creek Falls Inn to protest the proposed move toward privatizing a key portion of Tennessee's most-visited state park.
News outlets report that a few dozen protesters braved the cold Thursday while Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation officials met privately with five companies interested in operating the park's hospitality services.
The state has planned to spend up to $22.1 million to rebuild the 46-year-old inn, which would be owned by the state but run by a private company.
Opposition is centered on the impending loss of state jobs for inn employees, who would be displaced for two years during construction. Officials have said the state will seek placements for those affected.
Opponents also fear that the rebuilt inn would be too expensive for families.
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s winter trout stocking program resumes as the new year begins and will continue at selected locations through middle portion of March. The 2016-17 program began Dec. 1 and had 27 stockings at various locations through mid-December.
The program provides numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months. These fisheries also provide a great opportunity to introduce children or first-time anglers to fishing.
The trout will average about 10 inches in length. The daily creel limit is seven, but there is no size limit. Anglers are reminded that a trout license is needed in addition to the fishing license.
Some trout fishing opportunities close to Cumberland County include:
Wed., Jan. 18, 2017 at Cane Creek Park in Cookeville
Thurs., Feb. 9, 2017 at Pickett Lake at Pickett State Park in Jamestown
Thurs, Feb. 9, 2017 at Kingston Springs Park in Kingston
