SALUDA, NC – On Monday, March 19th, the city’s golf cart ordinance was amended to more closely match the state’s regulations. Some of the changes that were made:
- the decreased permit fees for the golf cart holders that is resolved by shaving off $25 on the registration beginning the second year of permitting.
- The ordinance used to require a $50 registration fee and an additional $25 inspection fee totaling $75. The ordinance has since been amended to make the registration and inspection fee $25 each, totaling only $50.
- Golf Carts are now allowed on roads with a 35 mph speed limit or lower. This changed from the previous 30 mph or lower.
- Unanimously the Saluda City Council approved the amendment which includes allowing both gas and electric golf carts to run on public roadways and lowering the age of drivers from 18 years to 16 years old provided that they have a valid license.
Golf cart permit renewals are said to be renewed every June.
