Williamson says they only have 125 members locally and there are thousands of kilometres of trail in the East Kootenay.
He says they’ve been working very hard with limited resources to keep trails open in the region but since money that they spend on licensing their ORV’s will now go into the trails they ride, the group will be able to do a much better job.
The account already has $320,000 and the Province says it is growing.
Williamson adds there’s a tremendous trails system in the East Kootenay with thousands of kilometres for recreational vehicle users but much of that is growing over and cannot be maintained.
