Registration and Inspection Procedure
In 2009, the City Council passed an ordinance allowing the use of golf carts within the municipality. That ordinance was reviewed and modified in 2012 to include the use of some recreational off-highway vehicles as well, and again in 2016 to set-forth annual inspection and registration requirements. Important points in the ordinance include the requirements that all vehicles be equipped with proper safety equipment, be insured, and be licensed by registering the golf cart/utility vehicle annually. Read the ordinance here. The fee for registration is twenty-five dollars ($25.00) paid to the City of Momence, annual registration stickers are valid from May 1st through April 30th of each year. All registrations after May 31, with the exception of new purchases will be $50.00.
All golf cart/utility/off highway vehicles shall be licensed annually, during designated registration and inspection times in the month of May at the police department. Requirements for registering vehicles include, showing proof of ownership, proof of insurance, all municipal bills/fines paid, and all appropriate forms completed. In the course of registration, the owner shall pay a nonrefundable fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00). The annual license shall be considered expired should the owner of a golf cart/utility/off highway vehicle, not register said vehicle at the designated times in May. The expired license registration nonrefundable fee will be fifty dollars ($50.00). The nonrefundable registration fee will be twenty-five dollars ($25.00) with a dated, proof of purchase document, for any golf cart/utility/off highway vehicles purchased during the fiscal year thereof.
