We are whole heartedly against the ATV ordinance, for the reasons that were outlined in your e-mail link, and also for fear of this enticing illegal activities and burglaries in our small, remote town. On our road alone there are quite a few seasonal homes. It's pretty obvious which ones are occupied or not. With the drug issues going on around us, with the desperation of those that are addicted lacking the ability to refrain from stealing and hurting folks to support their habit, to break into homes to support what they are doing, seems to me to be facilitated if ATV use is available. There is no way our constable can keep up with something like this. And there is no way I would support any of our tax dollars for having to be responsible for additional road maintenance and police calls for accidents or break ins. I don't see any positives that outweigh any negatives to this proposal. I will make every effort to be at this meeting to make a plea that this ordinance not be passed, and it bothers me that so much of our towns' efforts have had to be wasted on this issue. There are so many wonderful outdoor activities in this small neck of the woods. ATV use should not be one of them.
Thank you for your e-mail today,
