Village Golf Cart Ordinance 

Golf Cart Permits
On 08-16-2010, the Village of Holiday Hills, Illinois voted to allow certain non-highway vehicles (hereafter referred to as a golf cart, and golf carts only) to drive on certain roads within the village limits. The new ordinance took effect August 27, 2010. A golf cart is the only non-highway vehicle authorized to be driven on most of the roads of Holiday Hills, Illinois. Your village officials hope you enjoy the use of your golf carts, but stress the importance of safety while operating them as they can be more difficult to see by drivers of other motor vehicles. Each person applying for a Village Vehicle Sticker will be given a copy of this flyer and sign for it acknowledging they are made aware of the rules governing the safe use of the golf carts on the roadways and the requirements to legally operate one in the Village limits.

Plastic bags are recyclable but not in the recycle cart. Many food stores and boxes stores have collection points for plastic bags.
I have setup 815-385-2828 to act as a temporary hot line to help with the coronavirus. This line is to be used strictly to help those in need due to the coronavirus, financially for food, Also to call asking for wellbeing checks on our seniors and disabled residents here in Holiday Hills. All police calls are to be handled by the 911 center and NOT by this hot line. I will be seeing that all phone calls to this number are addressed ASAP. I ask everyone that lives next-door to a senior or a disabled resident to please check on them. If anyone is in need of food or groceries or even medicine and cannot make the journey to any of the stores, I will personally go shop and pick up what they need. Thank you and everyone please, we have no cases right now in Holiday Hills, let’s all try to keep it that way.
Please email the Holiday Hills police department for any ordinance complaints at
