With a vote of 3-1, the Sully City Council got one step closer to making ATVs street legal in Sully. Most of the council has been on board with the plan since it’s inception, but councilman Brent Vander Molen has voted no on every opportunity.

In a previous interview with the Daily News, Vander Molen stated:

“The only reason I don’t want it is because it’s going to cause chaos in town, and we don’t need the headache,” said Vander Molen. “That’s the only reason I voted no.”

If passed, a driver would be required to have a valid driver’s license, be licensed through the Department of Natural Resources, have proof of insurance and a bill of sale with the VIN on it to drive an ATV on city streets.

The final reading will take place Monday May 5 at the Sully Community Center.
