TOMAHAWK – The City of Tomahawk Common Council this week gave its final stamp of approval to changes to the city’s ATV/UTV ordinance.

The city’s Board of Public Works spent several months earlier this year reviewing the city’s ATV/UTV route ordinance, under which, designated routes previously went through residential areas.

The changes approved by the council during its meeting at City Hall on Tuesday, June 6 removed ATV/UTV route designations from numerous streets in residential areas.

Portions of several roadways, including County Rd. A, County Rd. C, N. 4th St., W. Wisconsin Ave., S. Tomahawk Ave. and Southgate Dr., will remain designated routes.

During last month’s council meeting, it was noted that many operators had already been utilizing the now-designated routes.

Going forward, it is anticipated that local ATV clubs will collaborate with the city to establish consistency in signage and club maps.

A public hearing on the ordinance was held during meeting, after which, the ordinance change was unanimously approved by the council.
