Send snowmobile registration locally

SPRINGVILLE — Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs reminded snowmobilers to register their sleds locally and avoid the registration rush, by mailing in their snowmobile registrations using the green “Renew Local” envelope, or doing so in person 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, but non-members must pay the full registration fee. Snowmobilers may contact the Erie County Federation of Snowmobile Clubs by visiting www.wnysnowtrails.com and for information on joining local clubs.
Riders must complete and mail in both sides of a New York State Snowmobile Registration Form, a copy of existing snowmobile registration and a copy of the registrant’s driver’s license. Snowmobile club members must also send proof of membership in a NYSSA snowmobile club.
Use a “Renew Local” envelope or a regular mailing envelope and send to: Christopher L. Jacobs, Erie County Clerk, 92 Franklin St.-Suite 1, Buffalo, NY 14202 including a check, per sled, made payable to the “Erie County Clerk.” The snowmobile registration will be mailed back, within a week.
Erie County snowmobile trails are scheduled to open on Dec. 18, providing the ground is frozen and there is at least 6 inches of snow. Riders can check with local clubs to ensure trails have been opened and to obtain the latest information on snowmobiling safety courses in and around Erie County.
“We hope that all snowmobilers will register their sleds locally,” said Jacobs. “By doing so, it helps keep needed money in Erie County instead of going to Albany.”
For additional registration information, riders can visit www.erie.gov/registrations or contact the Erie County Auto Bureau Call Center at 858-7450.
