REYNOLDS, Ind. (WLFI) – After much consideration, Reynolds will not adopt a proposed amendment to the current golf cart ordinance.

Earlier this summer, some members of the Reynolds town board proposed changes to the ordinance, which currently allows for the use of golf carts from dawn to dusk.

It was suggested that ATVs and other off-road vehicles be covered under the ordinance. There was also a call for vehicles to be equipped with lighting, including brake lights, headlights and turn signals.

The board recently decided not to go through with either of those changes. Instead, utility vehicles will now be treated the same as golf carts.

Spark Kelly has lived in town his whole life and he’s happy the ordinance won’t be changing.

“This is a small town and they want to run it like a big town,” Kelly said. “And this ain’t a big town, it’s just a bedroom town.”

The town board has also decided not to require registration fees for the vehicles.
