FARMINGTON – New Mexico’s Off-highway Vehicle Advisory Board wants to hear from riders in the Farmington locale. To do that it scheduled an Oct. 24 “listening session” to facilitate an exchange of ideas and information. The 6-8 p.m. meeting will be at the Farmington Civic Center, 200 W. Arrington.
In addition to meeting new members of the advisory board, the public can learn about its purpose and how the program is managed by the Department of Game and Fish and the State Game Commission. The Department was given authority for the program in 2009.
The program is funded through vehicle registrations, both resident and nonresident. More information is available on the Off-Highway Vehicle web page, www.B4URide.com.
Governor Susana Martinez appointed several new members to the advisory board in recent weeks. Recent appointments are: John Diamond of Winston; Rick Alcon of Albuquerque, and Randy Jones of Jemez Springs. Gerald Chacon of Espanola was reappointed to the board, and Ron Schubert of Rio Rancho is serving through 2015.
