Golf Cart Use Information

In 2012, members of the community expressed a desire to operate golf carts on village streets. As a result, we adopted legislation regulating their use. This legislation includes a golf cart inspection program. The inspections are completed by the Chief of Police at a cost of $100 (see example). Additionally,  the inspections are only offered to village residents, whether seasonal or year round. For further information, please visit the golf cart ordinance link below or contact the Chief of Police at (440) 466-8197, during normal business hours.

Fire Lanterns-ILLEGAL

Per the Geneva-on-the-Lake Police Department…

Fire lanterns are illegal… We realize they look cool and it’s fun to light them up, however, they pose a serious threat, especially in a small town with several buildings. The lanterns catch on rooftops, trees, and in power lines, posing a serious threat to the community.
