Lansing City Council amends City Code regarding off-road vehicle use within city limits

by Julie Berg-Raymond

During its holiday-delayed regular meeting  Tuesday, September 6 due to the Labor Day holiday falling on its usual Monday meeting day, the Lansing City Council voted to approve Ordinance No. 23 - an amendment to the recently revised City Code involving the use of off-road vehicles within city limits.

Ordinance No. 203 reflects changes the State of Iowa recently made pertaining to UTVs and ATVs (utility terrain vehicles and all-terrain vehicles) and brings the City Code into agreement with what the State has mandated regarding use of these vehicles. Among the changes is the raising of the age requirement for operation from 16 to 18 years of age. The changes may be reviewed in full at the Office of the City Clerk in Lansing City Hall.

The council approved waiving of the second and third readings of the ordinance; it will go into effect the day after it is published in The Standard newspaper.
