Vehicle registration renewals are pending

The October notices, remind­ing Lincoln County residents that vehicle registration renewals are pending, should be received by the first part of the month.

Recently, the Georgia Depart­ment of Revenue determined that the vendor contracted to print and mail the renewal notices on behalf of the Lincoln County tag office has been faced with several operational and production-related issues and therefore unable to fulfill his obliga­tions. This resulted in a severe delay in the mailing of notices to vehicle owners, specifically for the month of October.

The department of revenue is currently working on getting the November notices mailed as soon as possible. Generally, the reminders are issued 30 days in advance of the registration renewal date.

In her comments, Brenda Danner McGahee said, “We are asking resi­dents who have not received a notice to bring in their tag numbers. This will expedite the process of getting a tag for the next year.”

Although not required, participat­ing counties have renewal notices mailed to motor vehicle owners, who must pay the full renewal amount on time.
