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.
