Body

Whereas               All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) use in The City of Buffalo is banned;

 

Whereas               even with this prohibition, ATV use in The City is on the rise;

 

Whereas               as The City continues its renaissance, safety and quality of life remain important issues for all residents; and

 

Whereas              without strong fines and seizure policies, there would be no deterrent for those who illegally ride ATV’s in The City: Now, therefore be it

 

Resolved that The City of Buffalo Common Council-

 

1)            Seeks to work with Corporation Counsel to increase fines for illegal use of ATVs;

 

2)           Intends to establish City policy for potential seizure of illegally operated ATVs; and

 

3)           Directs the City Clerk to forward this resolution to Corporation Counsel and Buffalo Police Department.
