Town of Wheatfield targets irresponsible ATV riders
Thu, Mar 29th 2012 07:00 am
They've cast up dust on family barbecues, damaged farmer's crops, dug ruts in parks, and their noise has forced residents to close windows despite balmy weather.

In the wake of complaints, the Wheatfield Town Board on Monday approved up to $7,000 to provide about nine extra Niagara County Sheriff's Office ATV patrols to provide "stings" on those riding ATVs and motorcycles illegally.

The town's contract with the NCSO already provides ATV patrols in areas difficult to reach by car two or three times a year, according to Town Supervisor Bob Cliffe. He's hoping the additional patrols will help solve the growing problem of irresponsible ATV and motorcycle riders driving off-road in posted and private areas.

Wed, Mar 21st 2012 07:45 am
