New Boss Speaks

NC Assistant Secretary for Natural Resources Brad "Ives called the proposed public-private partnership to operate the [NC] zoo...'very interesting. It might solve a lot of problems.' However, he wasn’t sure that legislation to make it possible would be approved in this year’s General Assembly session..." [The Courier-Tribune, Asheboro]

"We’re working on a lot of things, but the zoo is a big priority.”

[Zoo Director David M.] "Jones said funding for the backlog [of] $30 million [in] deferred state maintenance for the zoo, which includes demolition of the African Pavilion, continues to be an issue. Statewide, the backlog could be as high as $4 billion-$5 billion for all state properties, including the universities. “We are competing with other interests.”"
