The Kewaunee County Board decided it needed more time for research before the first reading of an ordinance aimed at addressing road safety for All-Terrain Vehicles and snowmobiles. The purpose of the ordinance would allow the county to make uniform rules for ATV and snowmobile usage regardless of the city, village, or township they were in operating them. Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says it was decided before the meeting that the ordinance was not quite ready yet.
Weidner says board members will likely contact their counterparts in far northern Wisconsin counties where similar ordinances are already in effect. During Tuesday’s meeting, the Kewaunee County Board approved the $150,000 purchase of a 20-acre parcel located next to its current administration center.
