Golf Carting

In 2004, council adopted Ordinance No. 14-04, permitting golf carts to be driven on Village streets.

If you have a golf cart you wish to register, stop in at the Village Hall to purchase a registration sticker (during normal office hours). The cost is $10, and a new sticker must be purchased each year. If you are a first time registrant, your golf cart must be inspected by the Mayor before a sticker will be issued (to make sure it meets all conditions listed below).
