There were long lines at the Coweta County Tag Office Friday, likely because the office was closed for two days last week because of winter weather. 

Visitors to the Coweta County Tag Office Friday were faced with long lines for most of the day.

Around 2 p.m., there were 44 people in line. Melinda Cole was there Friday to renew her tag, but shortly after seeing the line, decided she’d return next week. Coweta Tax Commissioner Tommy Ferrell said it was a busy day Friday but that things went smoothly. There hadn’t been any glitches or computer issues.

Ferrell attributed the long lines to the tag office being closed for two days last week because of snow and ice.

“That’s two days worth of taxpayers now having to come to the tag office, when they normally would have come those two days,” Ferrell said.

The office was also closed for three days at the end of January because of snow.

Ferrell said that the county gave extensions of “a couple of days” to those whose birthdays fell on the days the office was closed.
