This is a very active council. Topics around safety are discussed and possible legislative changes are often proposed regarding safety. In addition, the council is in charge of a budget made up of money received from the State of Vermont from the gas tax, fines and penalties and from snowmobile registrations. This is a budget of a little under half a million dollars a year.
Expenses include, but are not limited to snowmobile trail signs, law enforcement patrol, law enforcement equipment grants, VAST equipment grants (groomers), lability insurance, trail mapping and safety education.
