The Town of Webb’s recently adopted snowmobile ordinance, which sets forth comprehensive rules for the legal operation of snowmobiles in the town, is on the verge of its first revision thanks to a few words that entered the law inadvertently, while surviving their way to adoption.

The snowmobile ordinance had been designed to round up and update the town’s existing snowmobile laws.
This was done in conjunction with a years-long codification process, which had all laws in the Town of Webb being updated and streamlined, with laws considered obsolete being removed.
