ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, Maine — Acadia’s budget for 2010 is increasing by more than $300,000 from last year, according to a park official.
Deputy Superintendent Len Bobinchock said Wednesday that Acadia’s budget for the 2010 fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2009, through Sept. 30, 2010, is $8,269,000.
“It’s very good news,” Bobinchock said. “We’ll be in a better position. Not every park gets a base increase like we did this year.”
Included in the park budget is $497,000 that is to be used for the park’s base expenses, which include salaries, operational costs such as utility bills and seasonal employees, according to Bobinchock.
