CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Much opposition is expected tonight when Cedar City's Council takes up an ordinance that would allow off-highway vehicles on some city streets.

Residents complain about noise and dust created by the vehicles. Others say it will require more law enforcement supervision and current ATV laws already are NOT being enforced.

Cedar City Police Chief Bob Allinson changed the ordinance to increase the age limit of riders from 8 to 12 years old to meet some of the council's concerns. The law also would require direct adult supervision of young riders and would establish designated primary routes.
