Townships in Kewaunee County have been pushing for an ATV/UTV ordinance for years which would allow the vehicles on paved roads. At this month's Board meeting that could become a reality. Several towns passed their own approvals before the County even began studying the issue. Others have approved preliminary language. Just last month, additions were made mandating insurance for liability purposes for ATV/UTV operators. If that is passed by the County Board, the townships will have to re-vote on the updated ordinance language. Kewaunee Board Chairman Robert Weidner says townships cannot get County enforcement without their ATV ordinances being identical to the County language.
The next Board meeting is Tuesday, September 17th at 6 PM at the County Building in the city of Kewaunee.
