Jefferson County Conservation director Shawn Morrissey provided their annual report this week to the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors. Morrissey said that Covid had its effect as Shelter revenue was down around $600 this year. Many events such as graduations were cancelled as group sizes were kept to a minimum.
A major bright spot was the record setting revenue generated at Mac coon Access. Normally around $7,000 is raised, this year many new visitors from outside of Jefferson County made their way to Mac coon and as a result over $9,000 was raised.
Morrissey added that all areas of the park now have addresses making it easier for 911 dispatch to relay the exact coordinates to first responders, saving what could be critical time in the process.
