The Cynthiana City Commission is one step closer to voting on an ordinance allowing golf carts on some city streets.

At Tuesday evening’s city commission meeting, Commissioner of Public Safety Amanda Moore said a draft ordinance was given to each commissioner for review.

“Read through that and see if there are things to change or amend,” Moore told the commission.

Moore said the commission needs to collaborate and make changes to the ordinance so they could, hopefully, have an ordinance to vote on at their next meeting.

Mayor Jack Keith said he is meeting with Sheriff Bruce Hampton next week regarding golf cart inspections.

“The inspections have to go through his (Hampton’s) office before golf carts can be on the streets,” Keith said.

In another matter:

•Cynthiana firefighter Jack True presented the commission with a statue, thanking the commission for its support while he and firefighter Andy Wiglesworth served in Afghanistan with the 201st Engineer Battalion.

True received a standing ovation from the commission.

“My hands have never had a weapon, my feet have never marched on endless dessert patrol,” Moore said to True. “All my hands and feet can do are stand up and applaud you for your display of bravery... And thank you, on behalf of the fire department and all of Cynthiana.”•Commissioners voted to accept a $94,950 bid from Caldwell Tanks for work on the Bundy water tower on the west side of town.
