According to Darien Fire Chief Dale Breitwieser, an earlier post about a reported snowmobile accident in Darien was part of a drill involving the Darien and Corfu fire departments. 

The drill started a little before 7 p.m. and just finished up about 8:30 p.m.

Hey Sports Fans – Just a point of clarification because this issue has generated some interest – The fee is only paid by snowmobiliers.

 

“Fee: $100 ($10 registration fee + $90 Snowmobile Trail Development and Maintenance Fund fee).”  (http://www.nydmv.state.ny.us/forms/mv821sn.pdf)

 

As you can see the extra charge is not a tax paid by you and me but only by snowmobilers to maintain and develop trails.  The state was entrusted with the responsibility of safeguarding this money that was designated for the sole purpose of developing and maintaining snowmobile trails.  In this case, the State acts like a bank for the snowmobile fund by overseeing the account.  If a bank misappropriated funds like this, it would be shut down and its managers would be sent to jail; why should the state be allowed to do otherwise?  It is my responsibility as an elected official to ensure that the money snowmobilers pay, with the understanding it will be used to maintain their trails, will actually be used for its intended purpose.”

 

Please review Assembly Bill 10732, which would prevent any transfer of funds from accounts that are specifically supported with a dedicated fee, such as the Snowmobile Trail Development and Maintenance Fund.

Park Police are reminding those who own snowmobiles that children between 10 and 18 years old need to complete a snowmobile safety certification course in order to operate the vehicles legally, according to WBTA's Dan Fischer. In fact, there's no reason parents, too, can't attend the course with the children.

The first certification course will be held at Genesee Sno Packers, 102 S. Pearl St., in Oakfield on November 23. Call (585) 948-5656 to reserve your place. Stafford will also host a course at the Stafford Fire Hall on December 2 and December 9. Call (585) 548-9951 for all the details on those sessions.
