APPLE VALLEY -- The tiny town of Apple Valley in southern Utah is set to vote on dissolving its government.
But there's a big concern that it could bring an unwanted suitor: the neighboring polygamous town.
Apple Valley officials say a disincorporation effort fanned by internal strife and anti-government sentiment is set for a vote Tuesday among the town's roughly 700 residents.
If it passes, some worry it could open the door for annexation by Hildale, a neighboring town largely comprised of members of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints run by jailed leader Warren Jeffs.
Mayor Richard Moser says no one wants that.
Disincorporation supporters say town government has failed to provide even basic services. Opponents say it is being pushed by a minority of fiercely independent residents who chafe under any rules.
