After three readings, a Lee County, Iowa ordinance allowing the legal use of ATVs and UTVs has passed 5-0 in favor.
The ordinance, first read near the end of February, imposes restrictions and conditions on allowing the legal use of ATVs and UTVs on public gravel roads. The ordinance additionally includes the creation of direct crossing for paved roads.
County Attorney Ross Braden said on Friday, a notice was put into the local papers about this ordinance and folks could start inquiring about registering their ATV/UTVs effective today.
The first two readings resulted in 4-1 votes, as the lone abstainer Rich Harlow wished the ordinance would allow unlimited riding hours instead of the limit that is currently in the ordinance.
