HELP! ATV/MOTORCYCLE BAN proposal



Dear Sirs/Madams:
Please read this proposed ATV/Motorcycle/Go-cart/Moped ban proposal of which our county board will be voting on, next week on Thursday OCT 13th. If it passes we will no longer…….well you will get the gist of it shortly. Please call one or more of these board members and express your disagreement of their ordinance. We are in the process of talking them back to the table through the board members. Somehow they have already “went by the books” and “publicly” announced a meeting, with the Zoning Board, and drafted this amendment as a result. Chris Johnson (815- 637-2250) is the board member who heads up the committee that drafted this ludicrous amendment. Here is the link to the county board members phone #’s
