SOCIAL CIRCLE - Georgia Department of Natural Resources officials say boaters will face fines later this month if they fail to renew their boat decals on time.

Department spokeswoman Melissa Cummings says boaters who don't renew expired registration decals before Oct. 24 will be charged a $10 late fee.

Director of the Wildlife Resources Division, Dan Forster, says lawmakers passed a regulation in 2013 to encourage timely renewal. He says boaters typically put off renewing their registration until just before the summer holidays.

Forster says the holiday rush creates a backlog for those looking to renew their registration and the law is meant to diminish that.

Boat registration decals are valid for three years and expire on the last day of the owner's birth month.
