Ordinance 865 passed on Tuesday night, which would allow the use of ATV/UTV’s on City streets. The motion passed 4-3-1, with the newest member of the Council abstaining from the vote. The verbiage of the ordinance would open all city owned streets to the use of ATV/UTV’s unless posted otherwise. ATV/UTV’s will be allowed to operate only between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., and state traffic laws were also adopted into the ordinance. Speed limits of 35 mph or less would be posted within the terrestrial boundaries of the city. Signs will be put up designating which streets will be open for the use of ATV/UTV’s. At the end of the meeting, Mayor Jay Eddy advised the Common Council that there is a window of 5 days from the signing of the ordinance to decide on whether or not to take action in any form of veto on the motion.
