After more than a year of research by the police chief and off-and-on discussion by village council, residents of Woodville may apply for a permit to operate golf carts on most of the public roads in the village.

Council last week approved an ordinance allowing licensed and insured drivers to operate the carts once they’ve passed an inspection by the police department and are issued a permit.

Councilman Dave Gallaher asked council at a meeting on Sept. 27 to stop police from enforcing a law that prohibits residents from parking on the grass. Gallaher said police are spread too thin to be strictly enforcing the law.

Council agreed to send the matter to the Safety Committee for review.
