This past weekend, members of the Chetek ATV Cruzers Club installed around 50 signs for ATV/UTV traffic in Chetek. At last month’s common council meeting, city leaders approved opening all streets and highways in city limits to ATV/UTV use. A formal ordinance was approved on June 9. From the hours of 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., recreational vehicles can operate on city roads, with a maximum speed limit of 25 mph. At the city’s seven entrances, signs were posted showing where the ATV routes began and ended. Inside city limits, speed limit signs were updated to reflect the increase from 10 mph to 25 mph. Knapp Street is currently the only ATV route that extends out of the city. Just over $1,500 was raised for the signs, which cost more than $1,400, including posts and other materials.
