On the Security Scene
Golf Cart Registrations
Recently, Security has seen an increasing number of golf carts that are not properly registered with the Association. One such golf cart is cart number 4915. If you are the owner of this cart, please give us a call! As a reminder, if you purchase a golf cart from another resident, you must register the cart under your name with us. The process is as simple as completing the registration form and providing proof of liability insurance.
