Rest Easy Over Government Camp

Talk of closing the Government Camp rest stop is over. The Oregon Department of Transportation has decided to fund the rest stop permanently, after considering last fall to close it. It costs ODOT $7500 a month to maintain it, and ODOT's Peter Murphy says the state is looking for ways to cut.   “We found the money in the budget to replace the $7500 it costs to clean and maintain that rest stop. Now where that money will come from and what that means is another pat of the budget will suffer, it just hasn't been identified. That's the trade we made.” There was concern over closing the only public rest stop between Sandy and Madras.
