Golf Carts

Golf Cart Ordinance

In July 2011, a new golf cart ordinance (PDF) went into effect. The ordinance is less restrictive than state law and was passed with the intent to provide a safe and conducive environment for the responsible operation of motorized carts within the city.

As part of the ordinance, golf carts must be permitted.
