Opinion: Retiring Colton Town Clerk wants to provide correct ATV information
To the Editor:
The following is in reply to another letter that appears to be providing misinformation. Since being the Town Clerk for the past 20 years, I can tell you that there have been no Town plans to open roads to ATVs in the Town of Colton any more than there is in the near future. New York State has made it clear.
The parking lot at the Sno-Skippers is used mainly as snowmobile parking. ATV’s primarily use the Fish & Game Club for parking. I am not aware of any accidents reported in that area to date.
Massena Varsity Football team members Chris Kucipak, Conner Eastwood and Connor Fregoe were among the many Massena sports teams cleaning up lawns for Make a Difference Day. “I was overwhelmed with all the Varsity team coming to help me. I am just so thankful to live in this community,” said homeowner Mrs. Murphy. NCNow photo.
