Trail users urged to show support at Mat-Su meeting
The Mat-Su Borough Assembly meets at 6 p.m. Oct. 18 at Assembly Chambers in Palmer for its monthly meeting, and Dan Mayfield of Big Lake Trails, Inc., is urging avid snowmachiners to show up in support of a resolution that will let Juneau lawmakers know that SnowTRAC funding is important. The draft resolution that Mayfield is sponsoring is a statement from the Assembly supporting full restoration into the state budget of the SnowTRAC funding as it has been used in the past. Mayfield, in a message to the Petersville Community Nonprofit Co. that was also shared with Curry Ridge Riders club members, said he does not expect any opposition to the resolution, but that the more supporters who show up in favor of the resolution, the more Assembly members will acknowledge that they are representing the public’s wishes.
