|City eyes vote on snomo access|
By Ken Anderson
While an advisory referendum was discussed, a proposed ordinance to allow snowmobile operation on Eagle River streets to travel from a residence, lodging facility or other business by the shortest route to an established trail was postponed last week by the City Council.
The ordinance was in response to city residents and visitors having to trailer snowmobiles to an established trail, whereas many nearby municipalities have adopted rules allowing access on public streets and roads. State law allows municipalities to enact local snowmobile access ordinances.
The city snowmobile access ordinance, requested by the Sno-Eagles Snowmobile Club, would be in effect from Dec. 1 to March 31 to coincide with land use agreements snowmobile clubs have with landowners.Councilwoman Carol Hendricks was hesitant
