NOTICE TO RESIDENTS AND BUSINESS OWNERS OF NEWPORT TOWNSHIP
THERE IS NO DISPUTING THE FACT THAT NEWPORT TOWNSHIP HAS A LAND MASS THAT ATTRACTS OFF ROAD ENTHUSIASTS FROM NEAR AND FAR, HOWEVER; A DISTURBING PRACTICE HAS SURFACED AND COOPERATIVE AND CORRECTIVE ACTION IS REQUIRED.
THE NEWPORT TOWNSHIP COMMISSIONERS HAVE SEEN A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE OPERATION OF OFF ROAD VEHICLES ON TOWNSHIP STREETS AND STATE ROADS. THERE HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS REPORTS OF ATV AND SIDE BY SIDE DRIVERS ILLEGALLY USING STREETS AND PARKING ON SIDEWALKS TO CONDUCT BUSINSS. NOT ONLY ARE THESE PRACTICES ILLEGAL, THEY POSE A SERIOUS DANGER TO NEWPORT TOWNSHIP CITIZENS. BY WAY OF THIS NOTIFICATION, THE COMMISSIONERS ARE REQUESTING THE FOLLOWING:
1. ALL OFF ROAD VEHICLE OPERATORS IMMEDIATELY END THE PRACTICE OF USING TOWNSHIP STREETS AND ROADWAYS.
2. ALL BUSINESS OWNERS OPERATING WITHIN NEWPORT TOWNSHIP DISCOURAGE OFF ROAD PATRONS FROM USING THEIR PRIVATE PARKING AREAS AND PUBLIC SIDEWALKS WHILE THEY CONDUCT BUSINESS THEREBY DISCOURAGING ACCESS FROM PUBLIC ROADWAYS.
THE INTENTION IS TO ELIMINATE THIS PROBLEM SWIFTLY. THE NEWPORT TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN ALERTED AND TASKED WITH ENSURING COMPLIANCE.
