The Snowmobile Committee is expected to recommend routes and times for snowmobile use in the City of Whitehall to the city council at its meeting this Tuesday (Nov. 27).
The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.
Given the short holiday week last week, City Attorney Rodger Sweeting attempted to make the formal ordinance changes in time for the city council to consider the amendments Tuesday night.
The recommendation was formulated last week as a result of an approval of a citizen referendum in the Nov. 6 general election.
The referendum called for an amendment to the city ordinance which prohibits snowmobile operation inside the city limits unless given special prior approval by the city council.
The referendum calls an ordinance amendment which would allow the use of snowmobiles in the city between Dec. 1 through April 1. The referendum gave the city the authority to designate the routes and times with at least allowing the use between 7 a.m. to 12 a.m.
The recommend routes will include all city rights of way and the White Lake Pathway, except for Business Route 31 (Colby and Thompson streets), Mears Avenue, Division Street, Lake Street and any closed streets. Colby, Thompson, Mears, Division and Lake streets may be crossed at intersections at right angles.
