EUGENE, Ore. - Months after their announcement, Lane County budget cuts have made their way to county-funded programs like the historical museum.
The non-profit Lane County Historical Museum has lost all its county hotel room tax money, making up about $38,000.00.
Officials said that all of that money went to the county parks system. Three people have lost their jobs and directors said they will have to rely more on volunteers donating their time.
"We're going to be looking for more private support." Museum Director Bob Hart told KVAL News Thursday. "Basically we will attempt to give the same level of public service but we're going to be looking for more help to do that."
Hart said the Lane County Historical Museum won't cut its schedule or the days it is open. Rather the museum will need around 10 more volunteers to keep programs going.
The historical board is still interested in an eventual museum move away from the Fairgrounds and possibly into the downtown Eugene U.S. Post Office.
That all depends on how much a move would cost the Lane County History Museum.
