The Bond County Board recently passed an ordinance concerning local roads.
Beginning June 1, Bond County residents will be able to apply for a county permit to operate non-highway vehicles, also known as utility task vehicles, side-by-sides and recreational off-highway vehicles, on local roads.
Board member Jeff Rehkemper told WGEL, “A permit can be obtained at the Bond County Sheriff’s Department from the hours of 8 to noon, Monday through Thursday, or by an appointment at the sheriff’s department for $100.
“$50 will go to the sheriff’s department and $50 will go to the general fund,” he said. “This permit will allow you to ride throughout the county, excluding state highways and the interstate. If traveling through a town, such as Greenville, who has a side-by-side ordinance, you will need to purchase theirs as well when traveling through.”
