(undated) - Lawrence County Commissioner Bill Spreen received a letter requesting the commissioner pass an ordinance to allow the operation of golf carts on county roads.

Bob Bridge of the Times Mail reports that Mitchell leaders passed an ordinance allowing carts to be driven within its jurisdiction, but Bedford has passed no such statute. State highways do not permit golf carts and Bedford's Fifth Street, 16th Street and Mitchell Road all are considered state thoroughfares.

Spreen says before the commissioners can consider passing an ordinance permitting carts on county roads they must consult with Sheriff Sam Craig and County Attorney Dave Smith to discuss potential ramifications.
