COLUMBIA CITY â€” An amendment was passed on first reading in regards to city golf cart permits at the Columbia City Common Council meeting Tuesday. It will be moved to a second reading at the next meeting Sept. 11.
With the county recently adopting an ordinance, Columbia City Police Chief Tim Longenbaugh said the cityâ€™s regulations state that those who operate golf carts in the city must have a city permit.
â€śI thought the golf carts could have some kind of a placard or decal that the permit holders could attach to the golf cart,â€ť said Longenbaugh.
