MUNDAY – In a special meeting of the Munday City Council on Tuesday, the new golf cart ordinance was further defined to include the regulation that golf carts may not be parked on public sidewalks, except by city employees during repairs or working on city projects. The ordinance already stated that golf carts may not be operated on sidewalks. Fines will be issued if a golf cart is found parked on a public sidewalk.
City Attorney Lina Trevino advised the council that a golf cart is defined by the state law as a motor vehicle designed by the manufacturer primarily for use on a golf course. As a motor vehicle, a golf cart must meet the same requirements as other motor vehicles.
Chief Mendoza reinforced that the purpose of this ordinance is to ensure safety and to comply with state laws.
In other action, the council declined the bids of independent contractors for installing the 450 new water meters. City Manager David Trevino asked the council to issue new bids, revising the number of water meters to be installed by independent contractors down to 250. Trevino said city employees have already started installation of new meters and can install 200.
