Chautauqua County Snowmobile Season a Success


April 30, 2010 (716) 753-4672

Mayville: -- With the final numbers coming in, Chautauqua County Executive Gregory J.

Edwards has hailed the County's most recent snowmobile season a major triumph.

"I am pleased to report that thousands of people from Chautauqua County, the

surrounding region and as far away as California used our over 450 miles of snowmobile

temperatures and some rain forced cancellation of our weekend events."

Chautauqua County Snowmobile clubs from the previous season totaled 3,380 Family

Memberships and over 5,000 snowmobiles.

Edwards also received a financial report from County Clerk Sandra Sopak on the number

of people who registered their snowmobiles at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

"Sopak reported to me that they had over 5,000 total snowmobile registrations," Edwards

said. "That was an increase of over 9% from last winter."

Edwards agreed with Sopak's assessment that the large amount of money these

snowmobilers spent in the County's numerous restaurants, bars and stores was a

significant investment in the local economy.
