Blue Mound State Park is looking for signature to allow snowmobiles to enter the State Park. Looking for 1,000 signatures to approve online petition. Silent sport group has been rallying against this petition. Columbia County members have been encouraged to get the word out to community club members for support.
Great Sauk Trail sent the DNR to take ownership of the bridge crossing the Wisconsin River. High waters have been causing the bridge to move. There has been some concern over the integrity of the current bridge. Options to bi-pass this bridge include using the Highway 60 bridge which would require travel over several miles of pavement. DNR is currently looking for options that provide safe way to cross the Wisconsin River.
Money for scholarship was sent in. There was a continuation of discussion for plans for the hospitality room. Members provided donated items to bring to hospitality room. There was an open invite extended to county and club members to attend the fall conference and hospitality room.
There has been mention that Wisconsin trails will need to be marked by GPS in 2017. However, there has been no instruction on how to complete this at this time. Rationale for this decision included verifying exact number of funded miles. This motion has been supported by the governor. There was discussion within the group stating there may be a smart phone app that can be used to GPS trails.
There was brief discussion regarding online maintenance reports and standardized location to enter information.
More Columbia County Hotline signs were distributed at meeting.
