Yolo sheriff seeks input on off-highway vehicle grant

By From page A10 | March 07, 2013

The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department has applied for grant funding to purchase equipment and provide training and resources to maintain an off-highway vehicle patrol team to better serve OHV enthusiasts and landowners who are affected by illegal activity.

“OHV users have trespassed and caused extensive damage to property,” a Sheriff’s Department news release said. “Many of the landowners have gone to great lengths to prevent OHV riders from entering their land. Property owners have expressed in great detail their frustration about this problem, and asked that we help seek a solution.”

Currently, the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department patrols various areas of the county using all-terrain vehicles and 400cc motorcycles obtained through the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreational Grands and Cooperative Agreements program. These patrols focus on green sticker registration, helmet law enforcement and the safety of visitors and residents. OHV patrol officers also enforce wilderness intrusions and alcohol consumption while off-road recreating.

The funds are through the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreational Grands and Cooperative Agreements program. The grant application is available for public view and comment at http://ohv.parks.ca.gov.

Public input and involvement is welcomed. For more information, contact Sgt. Kurt Zeiler of the sheriff’s marine patrol unit, 140 Tony Diaz Drive, Woodland CA 95776, or 530-668-5280.
