The Northwest Vermont Wheelers, a Franklin County based ATV club, approached the Selectboard requesting that the Town revise its All Terrain Vehicle Ordinance to allow ATV use on Town highways. Their proposal includes opening the following roads for ATV use: Fairfax Road, Fletcher-Fairfield Road, Kinsley Road, North Road, and Pond Road. In addition, they would like to repair an impassable and currently closed section of Kinsley Road to allow for ATV use.
The Selectboard requests that any residents who would like to learn more about this proposal and voice their opinion on it to come to the public meeting at the Town Offices at 7pm on May 6th.
Fletcher has an Animal Control Ordinance which requires that dogs are always in control of their owner, and that dogs do not stray onto other people’s property. If you are having a problem with stray dogs on your property, try to determine the dog’s owner and ask them to control their dog. If this does not work, then document the problems with still pictures or video and file a complaint at the Town Offices. The owners of the dogs will be fined, according to a schedule that is part of the ordinance. The fines are large enough that it gets most dog owner’s attention immediately.
