St. Mary Visitor Center temporarily closed
It is believed that the furnace in the visitor center malfunctioned and caused the sprinkler system to activate early this morning. There is water damage to the building, its contents, and some of the utility systems. The damages are being assessed.

The deadline for submitting a proposal for the concession contract to provide lodging, food and beverage, retail and other visitor services at Glacier National Park has been extended to April 2, 2013.
The extension is due to additional time in the contracting schedule and to allow interested parties to have as much time as possible to submit their proposals.

The new 16-year concession contract is anticipated to take effect January 1, 2014. The contract is for seasonal concession operations at five lodging locations, ten food and beverage locations, eight retail locations, road-based tours and transportation-related operations, and other services in Glacier National Park.
