Russellville, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers, Russellville Project Office reminds the public that to provide the best value to the largest number of people possible during these austere economic times, requests for shoreline use permits are deferred until Oct. 1.
This includes applications for new or changes to private boat docks, permits for mowing on government land, and permits for meandering paths across public land to the water’s edge. The Corps will continue to manage existing permits, and permit holders are reminded that the terms and conditions of their permits will still be enforced.
As was the case in 2013, deferring new shoreline use permits is one of several steps the Corps’ Little Rock District taking across the district to reduce spending yet continue to provide quality benefits to taxpayers. With a reduction of manpower this summer, officials are refocusing manpower from processing shoreline use permits to helping fulfill ranger duties in the parks.
For more information, please contact the Russellville Project Office at 479-968-5008.
