Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Gov. Matt Mead is headed to Thermopolis on Saturday to hear from residents about the future of Hot Springs State Park.

The Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources last month notified owners of TePee (TEE'-pee) Pools Inc. that they must remove their pool and other facilities from the park by early May. The company has had a concession to run a hot springs minerals bath and pools operation at the park since 1990.

A lawyer for the company said earlier this month that the company has no intention of vacating the premises. Efforts to reach company officials on Tuesday were unsuccessful.

State parks director Milward Simpson says the state is in contact with the pool company officials. He says he hasn't decided whether to give them more time.
