An ATV Ordinance regarding ATVs, dirt bikes, and other recreational vehicles was adopted at the January 2014 Borough Council meeting. It is now unlawful to operate these vehicles within the Borough. This ordinance was adopted to reduce noise, reduce dust and dirt pollution, and improve safety for pedestrians. There are certain exceptions, such as motorized wheel chairs and scooters used by handicapped individuals, and vehicles used for property maintenance or business purposes. Also excluded are uses by the Millheim Fire Company, the Penns Valley Emergency Medical Services, and other municipal, governmental, or military personnel when used to conduct their official duties. Code Enforcement Officers as well as the Pennsylvania State Police have enforcement authority of this ordinance. Violation of this ordinance can result in penalties ranging from $50 to $300 per offense. This is a summary of the ordinance. The full text of the ordinance can be found by clicking on
