The City Council passed Ordinance 12-19 in 2012 authorizing the use of golf carts on public streets in the City of Melissa and residents that are interested in utilizing golf carts in the City limits must register with the Melissa Police Department.
To register, contact the Police Department at 972-838-2033 to schedule an appointment for the inspection and registration process. You may bring your golf cart to City Hall or an officer to come out to your residence to complete the registration process. Please note that residents that live in neighborhoods that would require driving on highways and/or roadways which require speeds in excess of 35 miles per hour, must trailer the golf cart to City Hall in order to be in compliance with the law. As with all other motor vehicles under the transportation code, those interested in obtaining a permit must show proof of insurance at the time of registration. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the requirements/limitations under this ordinance prior to registering.
