Dedicated OHV Trail Maintenance Fund

Post by Rut Row » Tue Apr 10, 2018 6:57 pm

You are hearing it here first!

With the help of the MD Motorcycle Dealers Assoc, starting in FY 2019, we managed to get $750K diverted annually from the transportation trust fund to a dedicated OHV trail maintenance fund. The money comes from ORV title fees and should have always gone to DNR. The fund is "fenced" meaning it can only be used for the creation and maintenance of OHV trails.

Update: please don't share this widely yet. I think I will be invited to the signing ceremony. We'll use that picture for a press release. You guys can use it as a target at Granville's :lol2:

I should add that as sales go up, they amount of money they get does too. So, more trails means more sales which means more trails... I dig the sh*t out of that!
