With the tight state budget, one county is finding another way to get money for its new ATV park.

Bell County tourism officials say Yamaha is giving the county $30,000 for its new park, which opens this summer.

The money will be used for building trails and campgrounds.

"One of the things we wanted to focus on is to relieve the burden on the taxpayer, and still go forward with this project. We wanted to find some other sources, and Yamaha was one of the best sources of funding," said Jon Grace with Bell County Holler Crawlers.

Yamaha is also granting money to several other counties for adventure tourism.
