TWO RIVERS (NBC 26) —  A debate whether to allow all-terrain and utility vehicles on city streets took place at the Two Rivers City Council meeting Monday night, where the public provided their input in a formal hearing.

A motion for a two-year trial period with ATVs and UTVs was voted down six to three after hours of discussion.

"My biggest concern is the noise," one man said. "They're not as quiet as a regular vehicle or a golf cart or anything like that. ... It's just disruptive to the neighborhood already."

The city manager says the question has been voted on at council meetings at least three times in the past.

On Monday, 24 people came to speak their opinions.

"I just think that we need to trust people and I think give it a chance," another woman said. "If you can't trust people, then I guess we get rid of it."

The proposed motion would have given the council an option to revise city ordinances after the first year of the trial.
