Black Mountain Loses Financial Support
SAM Magazine--June 14, 2013--Black Mountain in Maine, owned by the Maine Winter Sports Center, had its request of a $51,700 donation from the town of Rumford voted down on June 13. According to the Sun Journal, the money was to help the area through the summer, get it ready for winter and pay wages for three employees.
The defeat was especially disappointing since the area had just come off of a great season that saw great snow and $15 lift tickets for the community.
Black Mountain officials will meet next week to decide its course of action. No appeal to the town is possible since it was voted down as part of a larger $8 million municipal budget.
