ATV riders continue to cause damage at lake

The Vandalia City Council last week discussed an ongoing problem, one which no one seems to have an answer to.

Alderman Jerry Swarm said he’s become aware of all-terrain vehicle riders causing ruts in the campground area, and lake committee Chairman Mike Hobler said the committee is aware of the problem.

“The spillway’s a greater problem,” Hobler said, noting that the city has posted signs and put up fencing in an attempt to keep ATV riders from causing ruts and erosion in the area of the spillway.
