FORT MADISON, Iowa (AP) - Fort Madison is considering whether to allow golf carts on city streets.

The City Council will discuss the issue Tuesday night. City Manager Byron Smith says at least two council members and some residents are receptive to an ordinance.

The Fort Madison Daily Democrat says (https://bit.ly/1rZNAWS ) the idea was first discussed in April 2011, but it was dropped over concerns about safety.

Smith says several cities in the area have adopted similar ordinances since 2011. He adds that a registration fee would generate some revenue. However, the cost of licensing and enforcement would increase operational costs for the city.
