Until Oct. 19, the Glynn County Community Development Department will stay open later and open on Saturdays to register golf cart owners in advance of a new local ordinance taking effect.
For the next two weeks, the department’s office in the Harold Pate Building will be open until 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
Golf carts are separated into two categories by Georgia’s state law: a personal transportation vehicle, or PTV, has a top speed of 19 mph or less and can transport no more than eight people, while a low-speed vehicle, or LSV, has a top speed between 20 and 25 mph.
Before the county’s new ordinance goes into effect on Oct. 18, LSV owners will need to get a tag and title in the Glynn County Tax Commissioner’s office, while PTV owners will need a decal from the community development department to drive on public roads.
Decals cost $15 and are good for five years.
Both the tax commissioner’s office and the community development department can be found in the Harold Pate Building, 1725 Reynolds St. in Brunswick.
