(St. Mary) Golf carts and U.T.V’s are now legal to drive through the streets of St. Mary.
Residents of the small Ste. Genevieve County town overwhelmingly voted to allow the use of these vehicles during the June municipal election.
The city council made it official at their latest city council meeting by passing the ordinance.
Here’s City Manager David Woods.
Even though 70-percent of St. Mary residents voted in favor of making golf carts and U.T.V’s legal in town, it wasn’t that easy for the city council.
The official council vote was two for and two against, so Mayor Carl Wyatt broke the tie, voting in favor of the ordinance.
