Operation of ATV's, UTV's, MPV's and Golf Carts
During these hard economic times, the Board of Alderman of the City of Waverly voted back in 2008 to try and help the citizens of Waverly by allowing the operation of All-Terrain Vehicles (excludes trucks and automobiles), Utility Terrain Vehicles, Motorized Play Vehicles and Golf Carts upon all city streets and alleys with a special permit (obtainable from City Hall).
The operation of these vehicles does not include the City Owned Parks or Missouri State Highway 24.
If you decide to operate any of these types of vehicles in the City of Waverly, the following applies:
