Boil Order Lifted

The boil order which was caused by the tornado on 11/17/2013 has been lifted for the village of Gifford.  Thank you for your patience as we worked to resolve this issue.  Please contact us if you have any further questions.

Golf Cart Ordinance Update

The Village Board has decided to not take any further action to enact an ordinance allowing the use of golf carts on village roadways.  Current state laws prohibit the use of such vehicles to be driven on any roadway unless an ordinance is passed by the local governing body allowing them.  However, state laws do permit the use of Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs) to be driven on any roadway with a posted speed limit of 30 mph or less. Therefore, the Village will not restrict the use of LSVs as long as they are operated meeting state laws. These vehicles must be registered and licensed with the Illinois Secretary of State.

Golf Cart Ordinance

The State of Illinois laws do not permit the use of golf carts on public roadways unless the local government body creates an ordinance to allow them. The Village of Gifford does not currently have an ordinance allowing golf carts to be driven on public roadways. The Village Board is researching the idea again and will take action in the coming months.  If you are interested in coming to our meetings, check out the Public Meetings page in the Government section for the dates and times of meetings.
