Maintenance, Repair And Improvement Account
Public Act 10-3
created a separate, non-lapsing account within the state's General Fund, to be known as the Maintenance, Repair and Improvement Account. This account will contain funds generated by special events at various State Parks, such as pavilion rentals, wedding receptions, etc. The Public Act requires that these funds be held in separate sub-accounts for the benefit of the park facilities in which the funds were generated. The Maintenance, Repair and Improvement Account was initially funded in 2010 with $1 million dollars in “seed” money. Half of the money ($500,000) was allocated to the Harkness Memorial State Park account, and the other half has been temporarily placed in the “DEEP – Administration” account. Future allocations from the “DEEP-Administration” account will be made for projects that support revenue generating initiatives at state parks, including Harkness Memorial.
The law also requires that the DEEP provide a semi-annual accounting of the revenue and expenses from these accounts, and to post that information on our website.
