Start Preamble

AGENCY:

National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION:

Public notice.

End Preamble Start Supplemental Information

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

All of the listed concession authorizations will expire by their terms on or before December 31, 2005. The National Park Service has determined that the proposed short-term extensions are necessary in order to avoid interruption of visitor services and has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to consider alternatives to avoid such interruption. These extensions will allow the National Park Service to complete and issue prospectuses leading to the competitive selection of concessioners for new long-term concession contracts covering these operations.
