Committee votes to open County Highways to ATV traffic

“It lost out in the court of public opinion,” Price County Highway Commissioner Don Grande said, the day after the Price County Board voted to remain with the existing ATV route ordinance instead of approving a number of amendments. 

ATV supporters presented their reasons to the board for leaving the ordinance as it exists, instead of making a number of amendments and their opinions swayed the board to agree with their position. 

There were 10 supervisors who voted against the amendments with only three of the 13 county board members voting to make the changes (Bob Kopisch, Larry Palecek and Dennis Wartgow). Grande said he has always had concerns about how recreational riding can meld with the state laws written for regular vehicle travel.
