Riders save money & help county retain up to $1.5M
Erie County Clerk Michael P. Kearns reminds 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 by doing so at any Erie County auto bureau.
He said members of a snowmobile club will save money on their sled's registration, as the rate is $45. Non-members will pay the full registration cost of $100. Snowmobilers are encouraged to contact the New York State Snowmobile Association by visiting www.nysnowmobiler.com for information on joining local clubs and to obtain your registration voucher. All but $10 of each registration fee goes to the snowmobile trail development and maintenance fund, which supports 10,500 miles of public snowmobile trails across New York state.
To register using the "Renew Local" envelope, riders need to complete and mail in both sides of a New York state snowmobile registration form (MV-82SN), a photocopy of existing snowmobile registration, and a copy of the registrant's driver's license. Snowmobile club members need to also send proof of membership in a NYSSA snowmobile club. Mail everything to: Erie County Clerk's Office, 92 Franklin St., Suite 1, Buffalo, NY 14202, including a check (per sled) made payable to "Erie County Clerk."
The snowmobile registration will be mailed back within 10 business days upon receipt of renewal form.
Erie County snowmobile trails are usually scheduled to open in mid-December, providing the ground is frozen and there is at least 6 inches of snow. Riders are encouraged to check with their local clubs to ensure trails have been opened and to obtain the latest information on snowmobiling safety courses in and around Erie County.
For forms and additional registration information, riders can visit www.erie.gov/clerk/autobureau or contact the Erie County auto bureau call center at 716-858-7450. Snowmobilers can also visit www.erie.gov/clerk/reservations to schedule an appointment at any of the three largest auto bureaus operated by the county clerk's office: Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Orchard Park and Tonawanda.
