Mayville DMV to be open Saturday for snowmobilers

County Clerk Larry Barmore, has announced that the Mayville DMV office will be open this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. so that the influx of in-state and out-of-state snowmobilers may register their sleds and be able to enjoy the newly opened snowmobile trails in Chautauqua County.

Only Mayville will be open, not Jamestown or Dunkirk.

Conditions are supposed to be favorable for the 400 miles of trails in the county to be ready for good sledding. Chautauqua County welcomes snowmobilers from other counties and states as their presence here helps the economy immensely at this time of year. With the trails open for the first time, hundreds of out-of-state snowmobilers are expected to visit Chautauqua County this weekend. On the off chance that the weather changes and the trails are closed, the DMV will not be open, but this is not expected.
