  1. ATV speed limits on town roads – discussion

Complaints have been received about excessive ATV/UTV speeds on town roads.  Bayfield

County does have a maximum speed of 40mph.  If the road is posted, they must adhere

to that speed.  J. Eid emailed Mark Little, DNR recreational warden in Madison.  She

asked about the correct way to enforce the new speed limit.  The current ordinance

could be amended and signs would need to be updated.   J. Eid spoke with John Carlson, the

town’s attorney.  He can amend it, but needs to know what the board wants done.  The

recommendation is to drop the speed to 25mph on all town roads.  The county and DNR can

enforce the speed.  J. Eid will talk with J. Carlson about changing the ordinance to current

specifications without the speed.  The speed will be finalized next month.
