In a week’s time, Green Lake residents may be able to forego their car and drive a golf cart around the city.

   However, it all depends on how the Green Lake City Council votes regarding a proposed golf cart ordinance at its Monday, Feb. 10 meeting.

   The City Council considered the proposed ordinance at its Committee of the Whole meeting Monday night.

   Council members looked through Princeton’s golf cart ordinance, which City Attorney Dan Sondalle drafted, and made revisions using Princeton’s ordinance as a basis for Green Lake’s.

   However, before members were able to review Princeton’s ordinance, they first considered whether it was necessary to do so.

   “I’m totally against it,” Ald. Diana Galster-Kinas said adamantly to begin the discussion.

   She explained she made a list of reasons why she did not favor a golf cart ordinance, and also shared comments she received from residents when she took a survey.

   “The comments that I got [were] ‘Why is this necessary?’ [and regarded] safety concerns,” Galster-Kinas said.
