[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Wilna as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 4-10-2000 by L.L. No. 3-2000]
The Town Board of the Town of Wilna, pursuant to the authority granted it under Article 48-c of the Vehicle and Traffic Law of the State of New York and §§ 10 and 20 of the Municipal Home Rule Law, hereby enacts as follows.
The Town Board of the Town of Wilna has been requested to open all roads in the Town of Wilna to the use of ATVs. It appears from examination of the roads requested that there are no safety issues and that prior use of Town roads by ATVs have not caused any problems. Further, the expansion of existing trails necessitates the need for expansion and use of Town roads at this time in order to access those trails. It is the purpose of this article to provide the use of all Town roads by all terrain vehicles.
Pursuant to § 2405 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law, all Town highways shall be designated as open for ATV traffic.
[Adopted 9-8-2008 by L.L. No. 2-2008]
The Town Board of the Town of Wilna, pursuant to the authority granted it under Article 4 of the Town Law and §§ 10 and 20 of the Municipal Home Rule Law, hereby enacts as follows.
[Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I)]
The Town Board of the Town of Wilna hereby finds that it is the owner of a certain property known as the former Town of Wilna Landfill. This landfill was initially closed in the early 1990s. A local law known as Local Law No. 2 of 1992 was adopted to restrict access to the site for safety reasons. In the 16 years since the adoption of that law, the landfill site has been successfully closed and all monitoring of the site has been completed in accordance with DEC regulations. While a portion of the site is fenced for safety purposes, the remaining portion of the site is currently in a safe condition. The Board has been approached to open this property outside of the fenced area for use by snowmobiles and ATVs. The Board finds that such use is appropriate.
Should any sections or provisions of this article be declared invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this article.
