Oneida County has been awarded a $40,000 grant to improve and maintain snowmobile trails across the county.

The grant, awarded by the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development program, will be used to purchase two utility trail vehicles and a trail paver.

“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,” said Congressman Anthony Brindisi.

Oneida County is home to more than 600 miles of groomed trails and 13 snowmobile clubs.
