Fruita is spending money in a place where most people would argue is suitable for spending thousands of dollars. NBC 11 News reports that the City of Fruita is planning to install fourteen flashing school zone signals around their five schools. The upgrades will cost more than $63,000 and the city will pay for it with grant money from CDOT. All of the school zone signals will even be solar-powered. The flashing light signals should go up sometime this fall.

The newly elected Cedaredge Trustees approved an ordinance last week that will allow golf carts on city streets. Mountain Valley News says the golf carts cannot be driven on Highway 65 and must be insured. Golf carts must have headlights, brake lights, a triangular slow moving vehicle emblem on the rear, a front mounted rearview mirror, and a decal from the police department saying it was registered with the town of Cedaredge. The golf cart cannot be driven on the sidewalks and can only be driven in the daytime. Pick up a list of all the mandates for driving a golf cart on side streets at the Cedaredge Town Hall.
