Anyone planning to use small motorized vehicles in Wellman during Fourth of July festivities should take a second look at the city’s ordinance.

City officials have been putting out reminders that there are rules that govern the use of small vehicles that apply year round and are not different on the Fourth.

“They are not acceptable and will not be allowed this year,” Councilman Shannon McCain, who also serves as a Washington County reserve deputy, said at the June 18 City Council meeting.

The city’s regulations apply to small, slow motorized vehicles operating within the city, including (but not limited to) golf carts, lawn tractors, electric scooters and motorized wheelchairs being operated upon any street, road, sidewalk, public path or public lands.

In addition, the vehicle cannot be operated in either the east or westbound lanes on Highway 22 and can only cross the highway at the Seventh Avenue intersection.

McCain said that there were issues with these types of vehicles last year.

“We will do everything we can to issue citations,” he said.
