NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - New tricentennial license plates are available in Natchez.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1Sj5Itz ) the commemorative specialty tags can be purchased at the Adams County Tax Collector’s office. Those who pre-ordered them should bring their current tag to the office and be assigned a new tag.

For those who didn’t pre-order, the plate can be purchased to be delivered by mail. The plates cost either $33.50 or $43.50, depending on when the tag is expiring.

Tricentennial Director Jennifer Ogden Combs says she’s thrilled with the plates’ design, which features a sunset, the river bridge, a steamboat and the tricentennial logo.

“We received a proof from the state a few months back and could not believe how fantastic the design ended up looking (on the tag),” Combs said. “Amanda Hargrove did a fabulous job creating the design that will represent Natchez in 2016 and beyond.”



The tricentennial commemorates Natchez’s 300th anniversary of its founding by French settlers in 1716.

A portion of the funds from the sales will contribute to the city’s tourism and education efforts.
