ATV/UTV club makes its pitch

The Belgium Village Board on Monday discussed whether to allow all-terrain and utility-terrain vehicles on its roads after the Lakeshore ATV/UTV Club made its formal pitch with a proposed ordinance written by an attorney for the Wisconsin Towns Association.

Club President Kevin Peiffer, his wife Brenda and her father Bob Hubing summarized the club’s interest in being allowed on village roads and fielded questions.

About a quarter of the club’s members live in Belgium and most are middle aged or older. The club has received permission to ride on roads in Random Lake and the towns of Belgium, Fredonia, Sherman, Adell and Scott.

Village Attorney Gerry Antoine said the ordinance can be repealed by the board. Stricter rules apply to zoning ordinances.

Village Clerk Julie Lesar said she will schedule a public hearing on the issue at a larger venue than Village Hall to allow more people to provide input before trustees vote. The hearing is slated to be held in early November.
