WRIGHTSTOWN - Tuesday, December 7, is Pearl Harbor Day - and it could mean sink or swim for the proposal to allow ATVs, UTVs and golf carts to operate on Wrightstown village streets.
The village board will meet at 6 p.m. on December 7 to act on a proposed ordinance that would legalize operation of the three kinds of off-road vehicles on village streets.
The ordinance would also allow their operation on some - but not all - state and county highways in the village where the speed limit if 35 miles per hour or less.
The draft ordinance, developed by the police department with significant input from Brillion and other communities where the vehicles are permitted, will be up for discussion in the Wrightstown Village Board's Committee of the Whole meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. and immediately precedes the actual village board meeting.
There will be a public hearing on the proposed ordinance at the top of the agenda for the village board meeting, and the village board will take action on the ordinance - thumbs up or thumbs down - near the end of the village board meeting.
Only three of the seven village board members - Terry Schaeuble, Dan Segerstrom and Andy Lundt - have publicly expressed approval of the ordinance. Four votes are needed to pass it.
The meeting may be accessed on line as well as by attending in person at the village hall assembly room.
