In reference to the 9/21/2020 Selectboard meeting, the October 1, 2020 issue of the News & Citizen mentions:
Other news: The town is also considering a change to ordinances that would allow ATVs on some town roads. Morristown previously opened a portion of one road, Silver Ridge Road, to ATVs to allow for drivers in neighboring Hyde Park the opportunity to access gas stations along Route 15.
Now, Lindley said the town is planning to draft an ordinance that, if approved, would allow ATVs on a section of roads on the western side of town that could include the area of Mud City Loop and Cadys Falls, thereby giving people driving ATVs access to a portion of the village.
He expects Morristown’s police department will help draft the new ordinance, and emphasized that that’s all the proposal is right now, a draft.
“None of that is approved yet,” he said, and likely wont be now until next spring or summer with ATV season now winding down.
