ATV-UTV Announcement 3-1-17


ATV/UTV Riding Status in the Town of Quincy

it is still illegal!

3/25/18  We plan on getting on the town agenda at the town meeting on April 26, 2018 at 6:00 pm. with our newly created ordinance.

1/26/18  Don’t hop-on your ATV/UTV and ride off of your property just yet. I thought that the meeting had gone fairly well and there was some good conversation between the town board, myself, and all people in attendance. According to Dan we have gotten further along in the discussion then anyone else.

The big issue that is on the table now is law enforcement in Quincy. Who is going to police and enforce the law. The discussion got more involved than just ATV/UTV’s in fact it went through instances of calls placed to the sheriff’s department that they hadn’t responded to in Quincy from things like late night noise violations, fireworks, loud mufflers, ATV’s etc. just normal citizens just calling in and complaining.

The Town Board is going to look into how Quincy could be better policed.

To explain and make it simple to understand, as to where we currently are please take the time to read the attached letter from the Town of Quincy Attorney.

You guessed it! It is still illegal to ride ATV/UTV’s in Quincy. It went pretty much like and how we all expected it!

ATV-UTV Ordinance Quincy 1-25-18

12/ 23/17 As we move along through the process, everyone already knows that our leaders in government move very slow at turtle speed and it takes patience and a long time for them to make any decisions,  process, complete, and implement anything.  We are still working on an acceptable ATV/UTV route in the town of Quincy. We will be pretty well all set to present the final route and Quincy ATV/UTV ordinance to them probably in January 2018.

10/10/17 Hey gang, great news! I just got word from Wisconsin River Power Company and we would be able to ride on their recreation Castle Rock Dam parking area. After internal discussions within the company they decided that they will not distinguish between motorized vehicles within their parking area whether automobiles, trucks, motorcycles, or ATV/UTV’s.

So their policy is that if motorized vehicles are allowed in their recreational parking areas it means all of them.

10/6/17 Waiting for answer from Wisconsin River Power Co. as to whether or not ATV/UTV’s would be allowed on their property (parking lot) only, at the Castle Rock Lake Dam.

9/29/17 Adams County Parks & Recreation response to ATV/UTV riding in the Castle Rock County Park on CTY HWY Z. Policy, rules, and regulations (no motorized ATV/UTV riding in the county parks)

9/15/17 Meeting results with Wisconsin DNR Land Management. We will ‘not’ be able to ride on, or through any WDNR land in the town of Quincy. It is protected for wildlife and wetlands. It is a Wildlife Conservancy.

9/9/17  We are currently working on an acceptable route for approval in the Town of Quincy. We are right now communicating with the Wisconsin DNR
