To operate a utility vehicle (UTV) or golf cart within Odessa city limits, you must purchase a special permit per vehicle. These permits shall be issued annually at City Hall and must be affixed to the vehicle in a visible location. The fee is $15.00 per permit and proof of insurance must be provided at the time of purchase.
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are no longer allowed to be used except in the following instances: 1) a special event approved by the Board of Aldermen, 2) snow removal, and 3) property or lawn care maintenance. In addition, a special permit must be purchased for $15.00, but this permit will only be issued to individuals who had an active ATV permit with the City prior to October 1, 2018.
Please read the new ordinance thoroughly for additional information and to ensure you are compliant. If you have any questions, you may call the Odessa Police Department at 816-633-7575.
