Local town council discusses ordinance regarding golf carts

BLUEFIELD Va. (WVVA)- The bluefield, Virginia Town Council discussed a new ordinance today that would govern the use of golf carts within town limits.

Current Virginia state code stipulates that golf carts can only be used to drive from your home to a golf course within a half-mile distance, and you must stay off the road and use designated road crossings.

The new ordinance would remove the distance limitation and allow for more road usage, provided that certain conditions are met.

These conditions include poses sing a valid driver's licence, a sticker from the town, and insurance for the golf cart. 

A public hearing regarding the new ordinance will be held at the next town council meeting on July 23rd at 6pm.
