SANTA FE ― There will be no sales at the Las Vegas District Office of the Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) July 22-30, due to a brief staffing shortage.
The Las Vegas office at 1926 N. 7th St., will still be open to answer questions and assist visitors with other issues.
Only designated collection officers are authorized to accept payment for fuelwood permits, maps, America the Beautiful interagency passes and other Forest Service products. In May, the SFNF announced that the Las Vegas office would not be able to sell products on Tuesdays until further notice.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this causes,” District Ranger Steve Romero said. “The good news is that we are getting our new staff up to speed and authorized to collect payments from the public. We are hopeful that we will be back to business as usual at the Las Vegas office soon.”
Customers may purchase fuelwood permits, maps and passes at Forest Headquarters in Santa Fe and the Pecos, Española, Cuba, Coyote and Jemez District Offices 8 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
