Wasilla delays decision on all-terrain vehicle ban

ANCHORAGE ó The city council in Sarah Palinís hometown has delayed a decision on banning the operation of all-terrain vehicles within city limits.
KTUU-TV reports the Wasilla City Council on Monday night indefinitely postponed a decision on the proposed ATV ban until the issue could be discussed at a work session.
The city already prohibits four-wheelers and other ATVS on sidewalks and city streets. A 10-mph speed limit is supposed to keep speeds down.
Mayor Verne Rupright says people have ignored the rules and thereís been a tremendous amount of complaints.
The councilís discussion Monday brought out a couple of dozen people and most who spoke wanted to avoid a complete ban.
Barbara Montgomery says safety and property damage can be better addressed through education and enhanced regulations.
