Stearns County Seeks Public Input On Electric Bicycles

Residents of Stearns County will be able to voice their opinions on the use of electric bicycles on county trails on February 11th.

The Stearns County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing to discuss the possible changes to trails ordinances being considered by the Stearns County Parks Department  to comply with new state laws.

The Minnesota Legislature has recently passed a law in which electric assisted bicycles with motors fewer than one thousand watts are exempted from motorized vehicle trail restrictions.

The county board will hold discussions to decide if electric bikes on pedestrian and bike trails are in compliance with the new law.

A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, February 11th at 9:50 a.m. in the Administration Center County Board Room in downtown St. Cloud.
