Side-by-side use to be expanded south to Fenelon Falls

Excerpt from My Kawartha article by Bill Hodgins

Deputy Mayor Doug Elmslie, who represents the Fenelon area on council, said that it’s a safety issue as well.

“If you have them coming down from other directions … from Haliburton or further afield, they get down to Northline Road and they may need gas or other supplies.” Without amending the proposed bylaw, they may not be able to get to them, he said. “By passing this, it allows them to come into Fenelon Falls or some of the other smaller hamlets to get supplies.” He added that there is no place along to trail to get fuel between Fenelon Falls and Haliburton County.

The proposed bylaw allows the side-by-sides along the trail under certain conditions; they include seasonal restrictions, proof of membership in the Kawartha ATV Association (KATVA) and/or reciprocating organization, proof of insurance and licence, and more.
