Jacobs Reminds Snowmobilers to Register their Sleds in Erie County

Jacobs Reminds Snowmobilers to Register their Sleds in Erie County

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs wants to remind snowmobilers to register their sleds “locally” and avoid the registration rush by mailing in their snowmobile registrations using the signature green “Renew Local” envelope or doing so at any of the Erie County Auto Bureaus.

“Snow has already begun to fly and we do not want any snowmobiler to be delayed in being properly registered”, said Jacobs. “Winter in Erie County is more fun on a snowmobile and we want riders ready to enjoy the season.”

Members of a snowmobile club will save money on their registration, as the registration fee is only $45.00. Non-members will pay the full registration fee of $100. Snowmobilers are encouraged to contact the Erie County Federation of Snowmobile Clubs by visiting www.wnysnowtrails.com for information on joining local clubs.
