WASHINGTONVILLE — As he watched Maintenance Technician Denny Piatt skillfully steer a Snowdog along a partially snow-covered access road at the Montour Preserve, Montour Area Recreation Commission (MARC) Director Bob Stoudt noted the perfect timing for the organization to receive its new piece of machinery.

While there wasn’t enough snow on the ground to groom trails at the preserve while taking the machine for its first test runs Thursday, Stoudt said if more than 6 inches fall Sunday into Monday the grooming will begin.
