REYNOLDS, Ind. (WLFI) – A White County community is reconsidering some of the changes proposed to a standing town ordinance.

In 2009, the Reynolds Town Board passed an ordinance allowing the use of golf carts on public roads. But earlier this summer, the board proposed an amendment to the ordinance.

This would add ATVs and other off-road vehicles to be covered under the ordinance.

Originally, board members proposed that vehicles be equipped with lighting, such as brake lights, headlights and turn signals.

After reconsidering, the board decided to nix the idea of making lighting a requirement. They said it was too much regulation.

Town Board member Rick Bushman said the goal is to keep things in the best interest of residents.

“Get it toned down to where it’s more user-friendly, ore town-friendly and it doesn’t cost people a lot of money to do it,” Buschman said. “That’s not what we’re in the business, where it’s costing people money.”

Buschman said there are plans to hold a vote on the updated amendment in October.
