Pulaski Chief Lynn Freer talked to the person in the Secre- tary of State's office who was in the know about the ins and outs of the legislation. Chief Freer said the city did not need to ban them since the specifications set out by the State of Illinois only allows such vehicles to operate if the vehicle is specifically manufactured to Illinois specifications. In case you are curious, the GEM vehicles meet Illinois requirements and you can buy one of the electric vehicles to use in town. The one pictured is called the e4 and the cost is $10,500. The company manufacturers several types of vehicles ranging in price from $7,500 up to $11,725. The lineup includes small trucks and vehicles similar to "gators'. Note, this does not includein golf carts, 4-wheelers, or any home modified golf carts. If you plan to add something to tree lined streets of Mt. Pulaski, check with the police department first.
