OHV RULES ADOPTED BY GARCO

Glenwood Springs—New regulations for off highway vehicles (OHV) were adopted today by the Garfield County Board of Commissioners.  Assistant Garfield County Manager Fred Jarman says the OHV user groups were instrumental in putting together a list of recommendations dealing with volumes, mixed use, surfacing and access to public lands. Rich Doak with the White River National Forest hopes the county will learn from past land management mistakes made by the federal government.  Doak says the county’s OHV regulations are a bit confusing, particularly when it comes to public land access.   Commissioners approved the ordinance on it’s second reading with the provision that county staff members and the board get together with neighboring counties, the BLM and the forest service to work out any differences.
