Chief Randy Heston of the City of Langley Police Department and Janet Ploof show off the first Langley golf cart permit for a street legal six-person cart to shuttle fairgoers between the marina, downtown Langley and the Whidbey Island Fair.

Heston said he hopes this will show that it could be a viable business for someone, maybe a college intern during the summer. Shuttle stop signs are posted around town.

“The thing is dressed up like a surrey. Very funny and just corny enough for Langley,” Ploof said.

A recent ordinance makes it legal to drive golf carts in Langley.
