Wahpeton, ND (WDAY TV) - Wahpeton leaders say a snowmobiling ban is a last resort, but something needs to be done to keep snowmobilers off levees.

The Public Works Committee got a complaint about a snowmobile hitting a sign on the south side of town.

Right now, the city is talking about what to do: whether it's stepping up enforcement, making tighter rules, putting up fences, or a ban on riding in city limits.

"So, instead of having that availability of making that quickest route directly from their garage where the rails are, they'd have to load up the ATV or snowmobile on a trailer and then transport it to that destination."

The Public Works Committee is planning to talk with snowmobile association officials and get their input on how to solve this issue.
