At Monday evening’s Herscher Village Board meeting, Ordinance 19-3, regarding Golf Carts and UTV’s, was approved. Effective no later than mid-July, off highway vehicles will be allowed on village streets as long as they have seats, a steering wheel, lights, and turn signals.
Also, Prairie State Gaming addressed the board to propose a gaming license for the Minit Mart located on Rt. 115.
