Mayor requesting feedback from residents

| May 27, 2020

At the May 26 City Council meeting, Mayor Mark Mills stated he wants to hear from the residents of Coshocton regarding the legislation he has been working on that would allow the use of UTVs (Utility Task Vehicles) on city streets.

A UTV is a four to six-wheel off-road vehicle furnished with a steering wheel, bucket or bench seating with seatbelts, foot pedals and a roll bar or cage. A person must have an Ohio Driver’s License to operate a UTV as well as have the vehicle insured with a license plate on the vehicle. According to Ordinance 24-30, it would be permitted to drive on any Coshocton City street with a posted speed limit of 35 mph or less. Mills explained at the meeting that UTVs are not 4-wheelers nor golf carts but are more like a rail buggy.

Mills also explained that he believes adding this legislation and allowing UTVs on the streets of Coshocton will result in more tourism and outdoor activities. Presently, UTVs have to be trailered to their destination, but this ordinance would allow them to be driven on city streets, which would be convenient for Coshocton City residents that own and operate UTVs in Coshocton.

Mills stated that he would like to hear feedback from residents in Coshocton, whether it’s good feedback, bad or indifferent. Comments, questions and opinions can be sent to Mills by visiting or by calling Mills at City Hall at 740-622-1465.
