Kewaunee County is one meeting away from allowing some new vehicles on area roadways. The first reading of the Chapter 25 All-Terrain Vehicles and Snowmobile ordinance passed the Kewaunee County Board on Tuesday night with one minor change. Under the proposed ordinance, ATV and UTV riders would need to carry liability insurance with them if they were going to be using county roadways. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says it comes down to safety.
The ordinance would become law if the Kewaunee County Board approves it again at their September meeting. Weidner says communities that have already passed ATV/UTV ordinances would be able to amend theirs to fit the county standards.
