How to register my golf cart

Hahira is a golf cart friendly community!  In order to operate your golf cart in Hahira city limits, you must obtain a tag from Hahira City Hall.  There is a one-time fee of $25.00 for the tag that is good for the life of the cart.  The tag MUST be returned to Hahira City Hall upon the sale or disposition of the cart and is NOT transferrable to any other person/family not listed on the tag application.  

To apply for a tag, the application can be found HERE and must be signed off by an officer with Hahira Police Department to ensure that the cart meets the requirements of the orginance.  The cart will need to be taken by trailer to the Police Department for inspection and cannot be driven without the tag.  The City Ordinance can be found HERE containing the rules for use of golf carts within city limits.

If you have any questions, feel free to call City Hall at 229-794-2330.

BMPs (Best Management Practices)

BMPs

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) defines a best management practice (BMP) as both structural devices to store or treat  stormwater runoff and non-structural programs or practices which are designed to prevent or reduce the pollution of the waters of the State of Georgia.

Structural BMPs can be thought of as engineering solutions to stormwater management.  Structural BMPs are used to treat stormwater at the point of generation or the point of discharge.  They can serve many different functions based on their design.  Some structural BMPs are designed particularly for urban areas, whereas others may be designed for agriculture or forestry.

Non-structural BMPs are just that, non-structural.  There are no physical structures associated with these types of BMPs.  They are designed to limit the amount of pollutants available in the environment that would potentially end up in stormwater runoff.  Non-structural BMPs typically lessen the need for the more costly structural BMPs.  This can be achieved through education, management and development practices.

Structural BMP examples include:
  • Rain Barrel
  • Rain Garden
  • Buffer Strips and Swales
  • Native Plants
  • Constructed Wetlands
  • Pervious Pavement
Non-structural BMP examples include:
  • Picking up after your pet
  • Washing your car on the grass
  • Getting a soil test
  • Disposing of yard debris properly
  • Disposing of paint and chemicals properly
