WEST LIBERTY — The West Liberty City Council is a step closer to approving an ordinance governing the operation of golf carts and all terrain vehicles on city streets.
The council Tuesday night set a May 4 public hearing for a proposed ordinance that would allow operation of golf carts between sunrise and sunset by a licensed driver at least 18 years old and of ATVs in accordance with Iowa code or as approved by the council. The proposed ordinance was reviewed during a work session preceding Tuesday night's regular council meeting.
"The majority of that is pretty much ready to be adopted by the council," Mayor Robert Hartman said.
Unless the council decides to waive the second and/or third readings, the ordinance would require approval of three readings to become official.
