Lake Tomahawk residents to consider ATV/UTV use on town roads in new survey

Lake Tomahawk residents to consider ATV/UTV use on town roads in new survey 


LAKE TOMAHAWK - People in Lake Tomahawk could soon see ATVs and UTVs on town roads if a new survey convinces the town board.

Last week, the town board authorized that survey, asking residents their views regarding ATV/UTV use on all town roads.

Town Chairman George Demet said the Lake Towmhawk planning commission is still in the process of drafting the survey.

The discussion surrounding the issue began last December when the Lake Tomahawk ATV Club requested 2.6 miles of Lakewood Rd be opened to ATV/UTV traffic. The proposal would have connected existing trails for the Nokomis ATV Club and Lakeland ATV Club.

Demet said he does not support the measure citing four ATV/UTV deaths on town roads in Oneida County last year. After the survey is conducted, Demet said the town board does not have to adopt an ordinance in accordance with survey results.

In the county, more than 76 miles of town roads are open to ATVs and UTVs.
