JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Companies that do business in Grand Teton National Park may be sharing some of their earnings with the National Park Service.

The park is working on a new fee structure for commercial operators in the park, such as towing companies or bike tour operators. The plan would take effect in 2016.

Grand Teton spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (https://bit.ly/1nNrUg5) that the changes would add a new graduated fee based on gross receipts in the park that concessionaires earn.

The fee would be in addition to an existing $300 annual flat fee.

Skaggs says Yellowstone already assesses the gross receipts fee.

As many as 100 companies, many based in Jackson Hole, have commercial use authorizations with Grand Teton.

Business owners say the fee will complicate bookkeeping.
