The golf cart controversy has been in the headlines several times over the years and this time it seems a bit more heated. What are the arguments on both sides of the issue?
On the NO side of the camp I have seen several arguments: Safety of these vehicles on city streets, lack of parking intensified with carts in vehicle spots, as well as the potential back-up of traffic with carts going slower than normal traffic patterns.
On the YES side of the camp, the arguments point to mopeds and bicycles as being already allowed and parking is a global issue that the City needs to address. Finally, other cities allow golf carts successfully in Iowa.
So, where does that leave the voters? Voters needs to reach out before Tuesday and make their wishes known to their respective City Council person. The Council should be obligated to vote as their constituents wish. Make your voices heard!
