Supervisors Talk ATV Ride Possibilities

The Marion County Board of Supervisors discussed the viability of an ATV ride from Knoxville to Chariton during their regular meeting yesterday morning. The idea of the ATV ride would be to draw people to the area for tourism. A couple of committee members told the board that the ride would end in Chariton for a motorcycle race. The board told the ride representatives that such a route would have to be cleared by the DOT. They also said that the date may not work. The ride would be scheduled for the Saturday of 360 Nationals, and the sheriff’s office resources would be tied up at the raceway.
