Lost\Stolen Plates

Thank you for your patience during this covid craziness, it is greatly appreciated! Wearing a mask helps me protect you, and you protect me.


We are now open to the general public and have resumed our normal hours of 8 am to 4:30 pm, we take rotating lunches so that we can help  you during lunch hours. We strongly encourage everyone that has transactions that can be handled through the mail to do so! This  will really help to keep the Motor Vehicle office and hallway compliant with social distancing and will help to keep employees & patrons healthy, safe & feeling secure in their surroundings!
