No Golf Carts on FM Streets


The Fort Madison City Council decided last(Tue) night that golf carts belong on golf courses, not on city streets. A story in the Hawk Eye…a local newspaper…says the council voted 5-2 against a proposed ordinance that would’ve allowed the vehicles to be used like cars.

On April first, the council was given a petition containing 120 signatures of people in favor of the ordinance…but earlier this week a second petition with more than 700 signatures of those opposed to the idea was presented.
