We analyze two local extensions of a model introduced some time ago to obtain a path integral formalism for Classical Mechanics. In particular, we show that these extensions exhibit a nonrelativistic local symmetry which is similar to the well-known κ-symmetry introduced in the literature almost 20 years ago.
