County Clerk Bill Knowles announced Thursday that his office has received a limited number of the general issue Civil War Preservation specialty tags.

Mr. Knowles said, “The general issuance shipment arrived today from the state and are in inventory at the Bonny Oaks branch office. The plate will also be available Friday at the courthouse office.

“Motorists who pre-ordered a personalized Civil War plate may also receive those at the Bonny Oaks Office.  If application at the courthouse office is more convenient, a pre-order may be transferred there with one-day notice by calling 209-7910.

“Registrants with a valid tag to exchange for the Civil War plate must bring their current plate, tag receipt, and photo driver’s license to make application. The Department of Revenue will permit the clerk’s office to pro-rate any credit that may be applied when making the exchange.”
