Council President Shannon G. Hardin and Councilmember Mitchell J. Brown will join Columbus Police Chief Elaine Bryant and law enforcement leaders in Central Ohio to discuss coordinated efforts to discourage continued reckless use of ATVs and dirt bikes in neighborhoods across the region.
"As Columbus neighborhoods continue to be bombarded by illegal and dangerous ATV and dirt bike riding, we must coordinate our efforts to address this activity before residents are hurt or killed," said Councilmember Mitchell J. Brown.
Councilmembers have heard from many residents across the City to come up with solutions to this growing problem. The strategies to be announced will be a step in the direction of addressing the issue. The Columbus Division of Police has also reported over 700 calls for service in response to these reckless activities.
The announcement will be live-streamed on the City’s YouTube channel and Facebook.
