Athletics Yukon president David Eikelboom also spoke to council, calling for the regular clearing of snow from the Millennium and Riverfront trails during the winter.

Over 20 people have written to his group to say they use the trails for a variety of reasons, especially for walking and commuting to work.

Several downtown businesses even contacted Eikelboom to say they suffer when the trails aren’t properly maintained.

Councillor John Streicker asked Eikelboom if he was aware there was a provision in the operating budget to keep the Riverfront Trail – from Rotary Park to Shipyard’s Park – clear throughout the winter.

Eikelboom said he was, but had some concerns about what “regular maintenance” meant.

Streicker suggested the group try out the section of cleared trail and provide council with feedback on how effective it is.
