Yakima City Council Talks ATV’s and Cowiche Canyon Trail Tuesday
When the Yakima City Council meets on Tuesday the council will be talking about the City of Yakima’s Cowiche Canyon Trail project among other issues. The regular meeting starts at 5:30 pm on Tuesday.
THE COWICHE CANYON TRAIL PROJECT IS EXPECTED TO GET FUNDING
The council is expected to authorize the acceptance of a Washington State Department of Transportation Award for $750,000 for the trail project. The work includes constructing a 10-foot wide graveled pedestrian pathway with two bridges over Cowiche Creek from Powerhouse Road to the existing Cowiche Canyon Trailhead. The trail will be approximately 2 miles long.
DO YOU RIDE ATV'S IN YAKIMA?
Officials with the Yakima Police Department have requested amendments to the current Wheeled All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) ordinance.
The proposed ordinance requires a "person operating a wheeled all-terrain vehicle to be at least 18 years old and to carry proof of liability insurance.
The ordinance also requires that a person operating an ATV comply with any restrictions on their driver’s license; for instance, if a person has an ignition interlock device requirement, that requirement would apply while operating an ATV." The council is expected to pass the ordinance.
The city will also introduce the new city Solid Waste and Recycling Manager Trace Bradburn.
