Golf cart license is topic in Green Isle
By Kurt Menk
A possible license or permit to operate a golf cart on public roads in Green Isle was a topic of discussion during a regular meeting on Tuesday night, April 24.
There is currently no city ordinance in place, according to Green Isle Mayor Randal Bruegger. A city needs an ordinance in place to allow this type of activity.
The topic was brought to the attention of the Green Isle City Council by Sheldon Mathews who wanted to know what happens if an individual operates a golf cart and is stopped by law enforcement.
City Council members Shane Sheets and Dale ZumBerge voiced their opposition to any type of fee for the license or permit.
Bruegger said there does not have to be any type of fee.
Bruegger later suggested that the City Council instruct City Attorney Ross Arneson to write up an ordinance to allow golf cart use on public roads in the City of Green Isle.
Mathews also asked about privacy fences in the City of Green Isle.
The City Council answered that the maximum height for fences is four feet in the residential area and eight feet in the commercial area.
Mathews later asked for a copy of the city ordinance in order to plan for such a project.
The City Council talked about the condition of the park below the hill in the City of Green Isle.
“The whole park needs a lot of work,” said ZumBerge.
The pavement on the tennis courts needs replacement and the concrete bench is in need of repair.
The project to replace the roof on the shelter is in the budget and will be part of a Sentence to Service Project this year.
The City Council later examined quotations for the project. After some discussion, however, the City Council unanimously approved a motion to table any action until it receives some clarity on the bids.
Sheets later volunteered to take pictures of the park and bring them to the next meeting.
Kipp Trebesch, Sr. and Kipp Trebesch, Jr. announced that the National Tractor Pullers Association would like to hold a truck and tractor pull in the Industrial Park on Friday night, Aug. 24
