The by-law has passed for off-road vehicle usage on municipal roads in the Township of Lake of Bays.

The announcement was made during the townships monthly meeting. Council approved to pass the by-law and excluded a few roads. Walker Lake, Bigwin View Lane, Ronville Road at the snowplow turnaround and Elder Drive were all removed from the list.

Township of Lake of Bays Mayor Bob Young says he was pushing for a certain area to be excluded.

He says with the passing of the by-law, he reminds all riders to obey the rules.

The Mayor noted over the past three months, the township received over 500 emails on this subject.
