OKANOGAN — Before a standing-room-only crowd, Okanogan County commissioners on Thursday opened more than 300 miles of county roads to ATVs.

Spencer King, president of the North Central ATV Club, said he was “pleasantly surprised” by the unanimous vote, but added, “I don’t think this was something they took lightly, and I don’t think it’s something they made a decision on just today. They have talked to other counties and even other states that have the same thing going on,” he said. “They’ve been researching this for quite some time.”
