Money for snowmobiling trails

Congressman Anthony Brindisi says he's secured a nearly 40 thousand dollar grant to support snowmobiling in Oneida County.

Posted: Sep 7, 2019 10:38 AM

A grant was obtained by Congressman Anthony Brindisi to ensure safe riding for snowmobilers.  He was inspired to do this because he says snowmobiling is a part of our Upstate culture and drives tourism across the region. 

“Snowmobiling is part of our Upstate New York culture and thousands of Americans travel to Upstate New York each year to ride snowmobiles in our region,” Brindisi said. “Keeping our trails accessible, safe, and pristine is important to local economies and this grant will help keep those snowmobile trails some of the best in the country.” There is more than 600 miles of groomed trails and 13 snowmobile clubs in Oneida County alone.

The grant is nearly $40,000 and will be used to groom and maintain 121 miles of snowmobile trails in Oneida County. This money will also be used to buy two utility trail vehicles and a trail paver. This grant is apart of the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development program.
