Snowmobiles have been spotted on the Estevan Pathway in recent days, according to Estevan Mayor Roy Ludwig.

"We would really appreciate if they stay off of the pathways," said Estevan Mayor Roy Ludwig, who brought up the topic at the end of Monday night's city council meeting.

"They're allowed to come in on the outskirts for fuel, or even for lodging on the east side of our community. But we would really appreciate if they would stay off the pathways. We've had a few spotted on the pathways, and of course we don't need that," he said.

Ludwig added that having snowmobilers on the pathway is a safety concern for people who are on foot.

"Very much so...if you can imagine people walking and then a snowmobile goes speeding by, not very safe," he said.
