Mich. Snowmobile Fees Could Rise
POSTED: Thursday, December 18, 2008
UPDATED: 11:08 pm EST December 18, 2008

LANSING, Mich. -- Snowmobilers would have to pay higher fees next year under bills sent to Gov. Jennifer Granholm for her signature.
The state Senate approved the higher fees Thursday as a way to raise more money to maintain and improve grooming on snowmobile trails. The state snowmobile program faces a $1 million deficit next year.
Trail permits would rise from $25 to $35 for 2009 and 2010, then increase to $45 for 2011 through 2015. Future increases would be tied to the inflation rate.
The three-year snowmobile registration fee would rise from $22 to $30 and the fine for operating a snowmobile without registration would quadruple to $200 on July 1. Some of that money would go toward expanding and protecting snowmobile trails.
Snowmobiling brings the state economy $1 billion annually.

I just checked my e-mail, and nothing from Dick Ranney over the weekend, or anyone else on the DNR ORV AB long-range financial planning task-group that I am participating in. The task group is working with the DNR to form a financial plan for the future, but our progress has been slow - when I agreed to participate a year ago I thought we would be done by now. The current ORV budget includes spending down a surplus that was created in prior years, but will soon be exhausted - 18 months or so. In the future there will be an increase in ORV fees, we are working on identifying the needs, wants and desires of the ORV/OHV community to project out a budget so we can determine how big that increase will be, or if it will be a series of built-in increases, etc.

Unless the legislature does something on their own without input from the DNR and the Advisory Board, we still have some work to do before the fees go up for the ORV program.

The ORV sticker has been around 16 bucks for a long time. I have no problem with dropping the 25 bucks so I can go to the Mounds and drive like a retard (if I ever get another 4x4).

i really dont have a problem paying 10 more if it helps the economy, but that's a pretty drastic hike in the price. i think 20$ would probably work. but the orv trails better get better taken care of as well. if anyone here has seen the bull gap trails they will know what i mean.

This year, all of the permits are going up. The sports fisherman's liscence is going to $45, which I'll gladly pay that as well as a $25 ORV, for the mounds and silver lake.

whta will the money be used for is the real question. I dont see the extra money going into the trails, or to help hunters and fishers. I will still buy them I would just like to see the money help the people that are buying them.

I can understand the snowmobile trail permits going up but is it for the trails iv been riding for 10+ years and have not yet seen a better trail system in order they say its for signs how much are these signs. its not for the groomers they are volunteers and the equipment is bought by grants in the county. I have emailed them about this and all i get is a run around just like trail permit what does it mean riding on trails that are suppose to be maintained they also say you need them to ride on a lake that is not maintained thats BS to me.

For the ORV are they going to maintain trails for 4x4 vehicles I dought it but thats GOV G holm for ya

But thats my opinion

There was talk of rasing it a year or so back to $25 per. the problem is the cost is going to prevent people from buying them. if I am going riding and have to spend an extra $$$ per I am not going and so would alot of others. so in return they would sell less stickers and loose money. I explained this would happen at the orv board meeting like 20 months back. the sled guys are already feeling it. the number of registered sled in the state is below 350,000 and quads & bikes are around 385,000

Two bills the governor just signed into law:
- SB 1489, sponsored by Sen. Jason ALLEN (R-Traverse City), increases snowmobile registration fees from $22 to $30 starting July 1. The $8 increases would be used to purchase easements, leases and use of private property for snowmobile trails.

- SB 1490, sponsored by Sen. Jim BARCIA (D-Bay City), increases the Snowmobile Trail Permit Sticker Fee from $25 to $35 in 2009 and 2010 and to $45 in 2011-2015. After that, the fee would be rise by the rate of inflation. The extra money would be dumped into the same snowmobile trail fund.
