TUSCOLA COUNTY — Gentlemen and ladies start your engines! Tuscola County’s Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) ordinance is in effect today.
County commissioners approved the ordinance at their Feb. 14 meeting, but the ordinance could not be activated until its notice was published in a newspaper of general circulation in the county. Notice of the ORV ordinance is published into day’s edition (Wednesday) of the Tuscola County Advertiser .
With its publishing, the ordinance is ready to be used, explained county Controller Mike Hoagland.
The ordinance authorizes and regulates the operation of ORVs on roads in the county. However, some roadways – state highways and county primary roads – are restricted from ORVs use.
A copy of the map for roads that allow or restrict ORVs use, and also a complete copy of the ORV ordinance is available on the county’s website www.tuscolacounty.org
