Brown County Commissioners approve resolution supporting local license bureau 03 Jan 18

The Brown County Commissioners approved a resolution supporting the maintenance of local license bureaus recently. The request supports additional compensation for deputy registrars to ensure sustainability in the new Minnesota License and Registration System. According to a Minnesota Deputy Registrars Association survey, the system still has shortcomings including revenue calculation errors and less than ideal responsiveness from the Department of Vehicle Services. Program training was insufficient, no-fee deputy transactions are increasing, deputy registrar costs have risen and office sustainability is collapsing.
