Inflexibility on the part of the lawmaker who sponsored the bill and opposition on the part of the locals sealed the fate of a 70-mile ATV/dirt bike trail in Becker County, according to one opponent of the project.

The county board voted 5-0 not to enter into a contract with the DNR to proceed with the trail at a meeting Tuesday at the Becker County Courthouse.
