No kidding.  What's that going to save them, like a couple of thousand?  

 

Wonder if they're thinning out at the management level?  rolleyes.gif

I'd bet workman's comp and insurance is by far the majority of that cost savings.  If you were a pro-patroller, you'd have to think long and hard whether to take a position at Bellerye next year.  .

From what I understand they did significant cost cuts at the beginning of the season laying off full time year round workers with year round long term benefits & rehiring those who wanted to part time seasonal workers with limited benefits.

Yes ,they did that as well.
 But don't forget it's not Bellearye ,it is the State of NY/DEC that is the problem

 They seemed to be busy yesterday.  I was driving past in a string of about 30 cars. 3 of us continued on to Plattekill, every other car turned into Bellayre.
