County & organizers discuss SNIRT Run

on Thursday, 24 April 2014.

Lewis County legislators met with SNIRT Run organizers yesterday to assess how this year's event was handled. The legislature had a more active involvement with this year's event following several concerns that cropped up after the 2013 run. As a result, more signage was put up this year, hours were changed, & participants were required to put a sticker on their vehicle, proving registration. Although legislators say they
believe this year's event was a success, there were some problems. One of the run's main trails had too much snow on it & ATV riders ended up entering private property, with the family saying the damage to that property could cost up to $10,000 to fix. The county says minor damage was caused to some public roads as well. In order to avoid similar issues next year, organizers plan to hold the event a week later.
