CLAYPOOL — Last council meeting, Feb. 20, Claypool Council President Niki Miller gave town marshal Dalis Owens the off-road vehicle ordinance the town had been working on to compare to the state statute. Owens came back to the board at their March 20 meeting and advised that he believed it would be simpler to follow the state statute.
“It’s a whole lot easier to enforce…they can’t say they didn’t know,” said Owens.
Indiana law requires that the operator must possess a valid driver’s license, the vehicle must have a headlight and taillight and the vehicle must be registered with DNR.
