Modified NPS Fee Structure Addresses Feedback from Public on 2017 Fee Proposal
 
In April 2018, the National Park Service (NPS) announced changes to the entrance fees charged at national parks. The changes, which came in response to public comments on a fee proposal released in October 2017, have modestly increased entrance fees to raise additional revenue to address the $11.6 billion in deferred maintenance across the system of 418 parks, historic and cultural sites, and monuments. Learn more about the NPS strategy to address the deferred maintenance backlog here.

The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), Box Elder County, and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) are pleased to announce that Procter & Gamble (P&G) will expand its operations in Box Elder County, creating up to 221 jobs in the next 20 years. Capex for the project is estimated at $310,000,000.

"This expansion will create hundreds of new high-paying manufacturing jobs in Box Elder County,” said Val Hale, GOED’s executive director. “This is a big win for Utah as we continue to help build our rural counties and create more jobs in these areas.” 

Procter & Gamble is a multinational consumer goods corporation headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. P&G has operations in approximately 70 countries worldwide and currently operates a manufacturing facility in Box Elder County that opened in 2011.

“We continue to greatly value our partnership with GOED and Box Elder County,” said Joe Tomon, plant manager of the P&G’s Box Elder facility. “Our expansion is a result of consumer and customer demand, and we couldn’t be more pleased to meet that demand with the excellent workforce of Box Elder County.”

The GOED Board has approved a post-performance tax credit not to exceed $4,191,954.

"Procter & Gamble continues to be a great employer here in Box Elder County. We are excited and grateful they have chosen to expand and bring more high-paying jobs to our residents. They are a great asset and partner in our community," said Box Elder County Commissioner Jeff Hadfield.

P&G currently sells products in 180 countries with brands like Always, Bounty, Charmin, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Olay, Oral-B, Pampers, Pantene, Tide, and Vicks.

“Procter & Gamble has been a steady growth agent in Utah. The company started production here in 2011 and invested again in spring 2018, and continues today to expand its state-of-the-art facility,” said Theresa A. Foxley, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “With wages above the county average, these are high-quality manufacturing jobs for Box Elder County.”
