A city ordinance that would have allowed ATVs and golf carts to be driven on North Bend streets was put on hold following during the June 7 City Council meeting.

Dodge County Sheriff Steve Hespen attended the meeting to give his view. He pointed to several examples in the ordinance where the wording appeared to contradict itself. He also suggested several other changes to the ordinance, the text of which was copied from another’s town’s code book.

The four other people who attended the meeting were split as far support or opposition to the idea. Troy Post said the ordinance was too much of a safety risk for the little amount of revenue it would bring in.

The ordinance was tabled without a vote and will be rewritten before being introduced again.
