It's not the casual users. The reliable and responsible drivers of All Terrain and Utility Terrain vehicles cause few problems and bring valued tourism trade to Price County.
Park Falls Police Chief Scott Straetz says he's not concerned with those riders and he is indifferent to the current amendments to county ordinances that would allow the vehicles to be ridden on the pavement of Price County Highways. After all, Park Falls is open to ATV riders and Straetz said that riders can get to anywhere in the city.
"Opening the county highways would not make much difference in the ATV traffic here," he said on Monday night, before the Park Falls City Council meeting. "They can get anywhere they want on the marked routes and the city is surrounded by trails. Once you get on the trails, you can go just about anywhere in Northern Wisconsin."
