It’s a first for Gravenhurst and possibly a first for Muskoka. Municipal By-law Enforcement Officers are getting set to take to the streets on two wheels.

The Gravenhurst By-law Division is now equipped with two fully functional mountain bikes to help patrol the Town’s Park system and move through the downtown more effortlessly.

The pilot project modelled after a similar program in Tiny Township will support two enforcement officers on mountain bikes beginning June 1st through to Thanksgiving weekend.

The towns says “Being out in the community on bicycles will allow our team to navigate quicker through high traffic, special events and areas within our parks and trails that would normally be more challenging to patrol.  We want to be here for the community to help them better understand Town by-laws and answer any questions or concerns they may have.”
