Chattooga County Tax Commissioner Kathy V. Brown is apologizing for any inconveniences the downed Georgia State Data Base has caused.

According to the Tax Commissioner, the system has been down since early Monday morning.  Brown said, "At this time the tag office here in Chattooga County is unable to process any motor vehicle work.  This includes tage renewals, titles, cancelling or reinstating tag and insurance information."

Tax Commissioner Brown has been in constant contact with Atlanta and Windstream concerning the matter.  Techinical support people should be in Chattooga County this morning to correct the problem.

Commissioner Brown apologizes for any problem this may have caused, and stated that she would notify AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio as soon as everything is up and running at the tag office.
