Stay Warm on Golf Cart

Nicole Stevens

Florida, the state everyone wants to retire to, is no stranger to cold weather. Though Florida is mostly a stranger to snow, cold winds don’t spare us here down south! But when your daily driver through town is a golf cart, how can you stay warm? Here you will find a few helpful tips for making sure your ride on the cart in the middle of winter remains warm and comfortable.

  • Dress in layers! That cold wind will feel even colder once the motor starts running, so make sure to invest in some cold weather headbands that cover your ears or something similar. Gloves are important as well. Break out that puffy jacket you never wear and get use out of it.
  • Store some extra blankets on the seats. This will provide a comfier ride as well as hold onto any heat left from sitting on it or being near a heat source, rather than the plastic/vinyl seating that stays cold.
  • Plastic panels will break down the wind. Those plastic covers for the sides of the golf cart aren’t always the most stylish but are effective in keeping the chilly wind at bay. It will still let cold air in, but not as much if the cart was wide open.
  • Invest in a golf cart heater. These handy gadgets pack a toasty punch, are portable, and fit right in your drink holder in the cart.  These typically run on propane and last for some time.

All in all, the best and least expensive way to stay warm on a golf cart during winter is to wear the right clothes. A few extra layers never hurt, and let’s all be thankful that winter only lasts a couple of weeks in Florida!

The Scoop on Sumter County Property Tax Hikes

Friday, January 3, 2020

Earlier this fall, the Sumter County Board of Commissioners voted to increase the property taxes in Sumter County for the first time in 14 years. The millage rate is increasing by approximately 24% to $6.70 per $1,000 of assessed value. As an example, the owner of a home assessed at $200,000, after a $50,000 homestead exemption, would pay $1,675 next year in county property taxes, up $204.53 from this year.
