Thurmond Dam store to require exact change

  • Follow Latest News

If you buy something at the Thurmond Dam Visitors Center, you’ll need exact change, checks of a credit card after Sept. 1, according to the Army Corps of Engineers.

The eliminatinon of the change fund is part of a nationwide effort to streamline the corps’ financial system. Currently, the majority of corps visitor centers across the country operate without change funds.

 Typical purchases include annual passes, permits to collect firewood, and certain other fees.

 Corps parks, marinas and other concessions operated on corps property will continue to accept payments normally. This elimination of change funds also does not impact state and local parks at corps reservoirs.

Who wrote this story.... The obligatory "Staff" credit isn't even there. Might explain the nonsensical phrase in the opening paragraph... it's easy not to take pride in your work when you know your name isn't going to be on it, isn't it? ;-) If I understand correctly, you can write them a check or use a credit card. They just don't accept cash unless you have exact change.
