Golf carts up for discussion by council
The Newton City Council will vote on a proposal to allow golf carts on city streets at 6 p.m. Monday night.
Newton Police Chief Jeff Hoebelheinrich will be asked to present his research to the council.
According to Iowa code 321.247, drivers of street-legal golf carts must possess a valid driver’s license in low speed areas no greater than 25 mph, but carts will not be allowed to cross a city street, which is a primary road extensive. In addition, golf carts must be equipped with a slow moving vehicle sign, a bicycle safety flag and can only be driven between sunrise and sunset and be equipped with adequate brakes.
