Wes Gerken is excited to be able to drive his new UTV on Paola city streets beginning in January after the Paola City Council recently revised the city's Standard Traffic Ordinance to allow for the vehicles.

PAOLA — Wes Gerken has a new toy, and he’ll soon be able to use it on the streets of Paola.

Gerken, who recently purchased a Polaris 1000 Turbo four-seated utility vehicle, asked Paola city officials earlier this year if they would modify city regulations to allow work-site utility vehicles or UTVs to be driven in town.
