Wahpeton considers snowmobile ban

WAHPETON, N.D. — Wahpeton officials are considering banning snowmobiles in city limits.

Officials say snowmobiles have damaged levees in town.

City attorney Steve Lies says it's illegal to ride a snowmobile on levees.

Wahpeton Police Chief Scott Thorsteinson says he's received several complaints this year of people riding the machines on the levees.

Lies says if it continues, it may lead to a total ban of snowmobiles in town.
