Golf Cart Registration Continues - Late Fees Added

Resident-owned and Non-Resident-owned Golf Cart Decals renewals are both now past due and will be charged a late fee of $20 upon re-registration. There are still over 2,000 resident-owned golf carts and almost 400 non-resident golf carts that have not been registered. The citation fee for an unregistered golf cart is $150 and the owner must appear in court. Please re-register golf carts as soon as possible online at 2019 Golf Cart Renewals

•    Peachtree City Resident Golf Cart Renewals were due December 31, 2019. City residents pay $45 for the three-year renewal cycle (3 years at $15 per year) and receive a yellow sticker to place beside the white numbered decal. The total now due (late fees added) for Resident Renewals is $65

ALL Golf Cart Owners are strongly encouraged to mail in their payment or use the online payment option.  There is no additional charge to pay online for golf cart decals via credit or debit card; however, the late fee is included in the payment. Golf Cart Owners who pay online should print out their receipt and keep it with their golf cart until they receive the renewal stickers. 

 

Georgia’s Presidential Preference Primary on March 24 – Updated Information from the Secretary of State’s Office

UPDATED Information - U.S. Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham on Operational Updates: Two weeks ago, the 2020 Census fully kicked off, and invitations continue to arrive in mailboxes across the nation. America is stepping up to shape our future and ensure families and communities are included 

In support of guidance on what we can all do to help slow the spread of coronavirus, 2020 Census field operations will be suspended for two weeks until April 1, 2020. The Census Bureau is taking this step to help protect the health and safety of the American public, Census Bureau employees, and everyone going through the hiring process for temporary census taker positions.

During this pause in field operations, the Census Bureau will continue to evaluate all 2020 Census operations. If any additional adjustments are required, the Census Bureau will communicate these changes broadly and promptly.

In late May, census takers around the nation will begin visiting households that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census to help complete the count. As we continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, we will adjust census taker and survey operations as necessary in order to follow the guidance of federal, state and local health authorities.

The public is strongly encouraged to respond to the 2020 Census online using a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet, and by phone or mail. Everyone should respond to the 2020 Census as soon as they receive their invitation — and when they’re finished, they can make sure their friends, families and social networks know about the importance of responding.

It has never been easier to respond to the census, and the 2020 Census will count everyone accurately. We recognize that many people plan to access the 2020 Census through other response modes, such as phone or paper, which is why the 2020 Census has such a nimble design.

On March 15, 2020, the Census Bureau announced several adaptations to our group quarters operations to accommodate recent scheduling changes on college campuses as leadership takes action to keep students and faculty safe.

For all other Census Bureau household and economic surveys separate from the 2020 Decennial Census, Bureau personnel will begin using phone calls instead of in-person visits. In the limited number of instances where an in-person visit is necessary, we are working closely with public health authorities to ensure safe visits.

Once again, we encourage everyone to respond online today at 2020Census.gov. With the flexibility and support of the American people, we will achieve a complete and accurate count that helps guide funding decisions for things like hospitals, roads and emergency services. Respondents can also respond by calling the number provided in their invitation or by mail once they have received a paper form.

Census Bureau Seeking Workers

The Census Bureau is hiring temporary workers to help conduct the 2020 Census, and opportunities are available in every city, county, and state. Employees paid weekly and receive paid training. Jobs will start between March and May. Apply online at 2020census.gov/jobs. For more information or help applying, call 1-855-JOB-2020. 

 

Water Quality/Stormwater Tip: Pet Waste


Did you know that a single gram of pet waste contains an average of 23 million fecal coliform bacteria? When it rains, stormwater runoff carries the waste material and bacteria into out creeks and lakes where it can create a health hazard. The City reminds all pet owners to please pick up after your pet and prevent your pets waste from contributing to water pollution.
