BOONVILLE, Ind. — A southwestern Indiana city is considering allowing golf carts and all-terrain vehicles that are properly registered on city streets.The Evansville Courier & Press reports (http://bit.ly/1oXmhvD) the Boonville City Council is scheduled to consider the proposed ordinance on Thursday. Two city council members say they are for the ordinance, two are opposed and the fifth says he won't disclose his decision until he votes on Thursday.
