4 Wheeler Routes Get A Boost

4 Wheeler Routes Get A Boost  4/18/17

 

  ATV/UTV routes on county roads received some funding from Taylor County’s powerline impact fund on Tuesday, April 18th.  Don Liske told the county board that the Taylor Made ATV club has received about $123,000 annually from the state.  However the money can only be used for trail maintenance and not signage.  He told the board that while Taylor County currently has 35 miles of ATV/UTV designated routes there are requests for an additional 35 miles.  He indicated that several neighboring counties have been proactive in opening up trails and roadways to ATV’s with the goal of attracting tourism dollars.  The communities of Tomahawk, Owen, Curtiss and others have opened all of their streets to ATV operation.  19 of Taylor County townships have opened all of their town roads to ATV’s.  A request to provide $10,000 failed for lack of a 2/3 board approval, but a request to provide $5,000 of Powerline Impact funds for ATV route signage passed by a vote of 13 to 3.
