The Conover town board is looking at options for allowing both ATVs and a bike trail downtown. At Wednesday night’s special meeting, town board members decided to sit down with the state Department of Transportation.
Federal funding lined up for the current trail plan would allow only non-motorized use in the summer, and snowmobiles in the winter.
Vilas County officials want the town to allow multiple uses, including ATV access, on part of the railroad grade near downtown Conover.
Town Supervisor Karl Jennrich says local business owners support a compromise.
