Last year was the first full year for golf carts to be used in the City of Lincoln and last week the Council took action to clean up some issues in its ordinance.
Lincoln Mayor Tracy Welch indicates because of all the state routes that run through the community, they needed to clean up language surrounding access near those routes.
According to Mayor Welch, the neighborhood of Mayfair is problematic because it is landlocked by a state highway and the ordinances do not allow golf carts on state highways. He points to instances like that.
The Mayor estimates there are more than 30 permits issued at this time in the City of Lincoln. Like other communities, they have regulations similar to that of a motor vehicle and golf carts have to follow the rules of the road.
