EVART — The 2019 year for Evart’s Police Department ended on a quiet note with department officials reporting there was no activity for the final week.

With the New Year and chances there will be enough snow to offer to snowmobile enthusiasts, the police department reminds residents to adhere to all City approved regulations regarding snowmobiling in the city.

All snowmobiles and off-road vehicles have to be registered in the city and meet all safety requirements and equipment requirements as outlined by Michigan statute.

On a city street these vehicles can’t go more than 25 miles per hour, or less, if posted.

The vehicle owner can’t be less than 12 years of age. Persons less than 16 have to be supervised by an adult and have, in his or her immediate possession, a Michigan issued snowmobile or ORV safety certificate.

Snowmobilers are reminded to be extremely careful and have to travel with the flow of traffic and travel single file except when overtaking another vehicle. They can’t operate no more than one-half hour before sunrise or one-half hour after sunset, unless displaying a lighted headlight and taillight.

No snowmobile or off-road vehicle shall operate, within the City of Evart, between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m.

Snowmobilers and ORV operator are advised to check with the police department to check with the website for more information.
