ATV Trail

County Commissioner Peg Sweeney in attendance. Presented county side of the trail proposal and what had happened at County Board Meeting Today. Tried to rescind county resolution concerning trail and failed. Stressed that the trail was just conceptual. County board passed resolution requesting that the trail only be on State and County land. Current trail design does not meet parameters specified by the State. DNR has not decided which county will be awarded the trail. Minimum of 2 public hearings are required for any trail. Trail would not use any county or twp right of way. No confiscation of private land. Answered questions to the best of her ability with the information that was available. Lots of questions from the floor. She supports ATV trail in county, but not necessarily here.

Steve Johnson from hwy dept attended to answer questions about ROW. ATV can ride in ditch bottom or backslope. HWY dept intention was just for road.

Pequaywan Permits

Are there permits issued to Pequaywan Inn for anything?
