County Commissioner Robert Swander said that the denial of the claim by the Game and Fish Commission means that the county will have to foot the bill for the rescue operations. Since no funds have been budgeted for rescues, Swander said it means county residents will get that much less In service from the county this year.

Signs were posted on each parking meter, advising that "Passenger Cars Only" could park there. A passenger car was defined as a vehicle with two seats, one behind the other. Pickup owners (those without campers mounted) let out a cry that their vehicles were being discriminated against. The parking meter signs those which hadn't been removed by persons unknown were taken off the poles. A committee was named to study the problem. Cody's main street, laid out by William F. (Buffalo Bill) Cody to be wide enough to enable a twenty-horse team to turn around, has four-lane traffic and angle parking. The problem is that a driver whose vision is blocked by a huge camper or van, begins to ease backward into the traffic flow. Chief of Police Al Vanderpool has said that this type of aeddent is the most prevelant in that dty. Another suggestion made by the special committee is that the two-hour parking limit be enforced in the downtown area. Looking further ahead, the group also suggested that the dty begin to acquire land fx off-street parking with an eye toward changing to parallel parking along Sheridan Avenue.
