Kansas Forest Service deals with fires, budget constraints

KSAL StaffApril 17, 2016

http://j.mp/1VwUDHz) the service has a budget of around $3 million, but only about 10 percent has come from the state. Biles has been asking the state to provide at least $1 million in matching funds, but as the biggest fire in state history was raging in March, he had to return more than $15,000 as part of statewide budget cuts. The small budget means the Kansas Forest Service has only been able to hire four staffers whose primary responsibility is fire, and only one of those is specifically tasked with direct fire prevention. — Information from: The Wichita (Kan.)
