Reed City Starts One Year Experiment to Allow UTV's In Town
On May 20th the Reed City Council adopted a Resolution that gave the go ahead for the Police Chief to work with a committee of UTV owners to set up a one year experiment for UTV’s to enter the City on designated routes and use the City streets to get to places of interest.
Under the current City code, UTV’s, motorcycles and other 4 wheel powered vehicles were prohibited but the UTV Committee spent the time and effort to draft an Ordinance amendment that allows UTV’s. Golf carts, “quads”, motorcycles and other similar type off road vehicles are still prohibited but the one year experiment opens the door to see how allowing just this one type of off road vehicle will work out.
