Morgantown officials plan to appeal part of a court ruling that overturned the city's restrictions on heavy trucks in the downtown business district.

Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Joanna Tabit ruled in December that state code trumps city law concerning state highways.

The Dominion Post reports that City Council voted on Tuesday to appeal that part of Tabit's ruling. The ruling came in lawsuits filed by two companies challenging the city's ordinance.

City Manager Jeff Mikorski says the lawsuits contain other issues that wouldn't be covered by the appeal.
