Golf Cart Ordinance Passed in Vidalia
Thursday, 19 December 2013

December 19--  Concerned about safety on city streets, the Vidalia city council is taking steps to control golf carts.

At a called meeting Thursday, the council voted to require that any golf carts which use city streets must be registered with city hall.  

City manager Bill Torrance says the carts must be equipped with flashing lights and warning triangle and that a licensed driver must be in the golf cart at all times.

The council also approved an amendment to the city's contract with Environmental Services Group, the company which operates the city's water and sewer system.  The change puts ESG in charge of the city's maintenance shop and is expected to save at least $5,000 a year.

In another action, the council approved a measure putting teeth in a city ordinance regarding tampering with or damaging city water meters.
