As the City of Lake Mills considers an ordinance to legalize the use of all-terrain vehicles and utility task vehicles on city roads and county highway segments, city staff is looking for more feedback from residents.

Municipalities surrounding the city, including the Town of Lake Mills, the Town of Milford, the Village of Cambridge, the City of Waterloo and the Town of Waterloo have all passed ordinances creating ATV and UTV routes in municipal limits in the last five years.

Lake Mills city council and public works board members discussed the possibility of legalizing the use of ATVs and UTVs on city roads and county highways within the municipality. Before making a decision, the public works board asked city staff to consider getting more public input either via a public hearing or a non-binding referendum in November.
