Sheriff's Office Reminders
Streets, Schools and Golf Carts
Our local officers and the Town would like to remind residents about the rules regarding speeding, parking and licensed golf carts. Now that school is OFFICIALLY back in session, it's a good reminder for everyone to practice safe driving.
Lyons Middle/Senior High School
The parking lot is under construction and there is very limited parking for students and for staff near the school. The school requests your help by NOT parking at the school to go to the dog park or biking/hiking access to Picture Rock Trail during school hours, Monday - Friday.
There is a stop sign directly in front of the school. Please remember to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. Staff and students are walking to and from the school during school hours. There are 3 crosswalks by the school for pedestrian safety. As a reminder, bicyclists and golf carts must also follow vehicular traffic rules.
The speed along McConnell and near the high school is 20 MPH. Remember, twenty is plenty!
- Drivers must have a valid driver's license to operate a golf cart in the town of Lyons.
- If the driver has only a drivers permit, they must have a valid licensed driver with them while driving.
- Also per code, no golf carts may be operated on any state highway within the Town limits, except to cross a state highway at a designated street intersection ie: 4th Ave and Broadway, golf cart must stay on 4th Ave.
- Any person age 18 or younger must be secured by a seat belt at all times while operating or riding in a golf cart on Town streets or rights-of-way.
