Main St., or take 240th St., instead of 250th St. by him. It was stated that we cannot tell them which streets they can go on. Jensen stated that you do for ATV routes. An Ordinance Committee meeting will take a look at our ordinances before the next regular board meeting (5:30 p.m., Oct. 21, 2019).
