The Jekyll Island Authority is giving tour guide operators more time to provide input on a plan to test their knowledge of the island's history.

The authority board decided at its meeting Monday to delay a vote by two months, allowing for a second reading of the revised ordinance and more public comment at its next meeting on July 15.

The plan would require tour guides in the historic district to pass a test on Jekyll Island history. The test would be given by the Jekyll Island Authority, which operates the state park.

Authority officials have said they want to make sure that private tour operators are knowledgeable about the island's past.
