Oregon Inlet Fishing Center will be operated under an extended contract for another year while the National Park Service re-evaluates terms that were rejected in October by the center’s board.
Neither the Park Service nor representatives of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center Inc. would elaborate on details of the disagreement, but both parties profess to want to find a solution.
“We’re re-evaluating,” said Joanne Blankenship, NPS concessions management specialist. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen at this point. That’s why we’re giving the current concessionaire another year extension. We don’t want to stop operations — it’s a visitor service.”
