An ordinance opening up off-highway vehicle usage on Kewaunee County roads will head back to committee. The Kewaunee County Board voted to table the item until it can be discussed again by its highway safety committee. Sheriff Matt Joski helped craft the ordinance to allow All-Terrain Vehicles and snowmobiles drive on the road as long as they followed some other rules such as a minimum age of 16 years old and restricted areas and hours of operation. In the time since it has bounced around different committees and various meetings Joski admits he has concerns on adding another type of vehicle on area roadways that already have cars, trucks, and farm equipment. He says the ordinance is about standard enforcement throughout the county since it is up to the individual townships on whether or not the vehicles are allowed.
Joski says you can never give out enough information and looks forward to working with the different county committees over the coming weeks to address additional concerns with the ordinance.
