on the tv local news has reported that the Maine Governor has created a task force to deal with the issue of ATV treaspassing on private roads/properties.
Interesting! I know a few people who could tell them stories... do you know who to contact?
contact the Me. dept of inland fisheries and wildlife
Representatives on the committee include Co-Chair Timothy Peabody of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife; John Bryant of American Forest Management; Matt Stedman of Irving Woodlands, Kyle Burdick of the Maine Forest Products Council, Tom Doak of Maine Woodland Owners, Julie Ann Smith of the Maine Farm Bureau, Brian Berube of Central Maine Power, David Montague of the Downeast Land Trust, Dick Howlett of ATV Maine, David Jones of the Jackman Borders Riders Club, Ian Bourgoin of Fort Kent Powersports, Bob Meyers of the Maine Snowmobile Association, Brian Bronson of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, and Dave Chabot of the Maine Warden Service. There still is a vacant position to be filled by a large farmland owner.
Here is more information about the Task Force on ATV use. It also includes a link where you can go to give your input. This is a great survey in that it doesn't give you limited biased answer options, but gives you space to answer any way you want. Please let them know how you feel about ATV's - the good and the bad, where they are useful or should be used, where they cause problems, etc. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO BE HEARD! (Do be aware, though, that it will only let you answer once. If you have after-thoughts, it won't let you access the survey again.)
