Thanks for joining us this morning. Always a pleasure and <hes> wanted to check in with you about a couple of things going on one. Is this actually i i we had a little discussion about it on the day. Graham show <hes> sometime in the last couple weeks but <hes> williamstown was debating debating whether to allow a._t._v.'s brought access to <hes> town roads and i see that that is spreading around other parts of vermont <hes> justin trombley v._d._i. Dot org headed through ryota cra- aspiration talking about this a similar issue. Yeah it's playing out all across the northeast kingdom. You know the question of how much access to give a._t._v.'s the public roads you know do you <hes> allow them to ride on all roads <hes> along with paths the roads often connect those a._t._v. has or do you sort of give them very limited access s. based on what they need <hes> the debates happening in montgomery and holland and hardwick and sutton <hes> and as you said just in focused on crafts berry where they just had a vote vote on tuesday last week that really divided the town <hes> the story that he wrote starts with the select board chair saying that no issue in his thirty years or something. I'm sort sort of involvement in local politics has divided the town as much as <hes> this question of how much road access to give all terrain vehicles <hes> and there was sort of a the new rule that was written <hes> that actually made <hes> increased access somewhat but atv riders wanted more access so they reopened the debate <hes> sorta in a way shot themselves in the foot because <hes> ended up going the other direction and they rolled back by vote of one hundred and nine to eighty six the rules that had had been passed a couple of years ago <hes> so there's now very limited access for atv riders <hes> in crafts berry <hes> but the story really gets into a bigger sort of cultural question question of whether a._t._v.'s.
