Bello consolidates city DMV services 

County Clerk Adam Bello is eliminating Department of Motor Services at the county parks offices in Highland Park starting March 15. Instead, his office is making DMV services available daily at  City Place, 50 West Main Street.

Bello, a Democrat, tried to advance a plan for a full-time DMV office at City Place in the 2017 county budget. The County Legislature's Republican majority, however, shut that effort down by amending the budget to redirect the funding Bello set aside for the project.

The plan Bello announced today will create a de facto city DMV office. It'll have shorter hours than the full-scale DMV braches in Greece, Henrietta, and Irondequoit. And it won't operate out of formal facilities. But it'll operate out of the same location every day, at consistent hours, and in a location that's accessible to people who rely on public transit or who have disabilities and mobility issues, Bello says in a press release.

“I remain committed to providing the 210,000 residents of the City of Rochester and the additional 50,000 people working downtown with a full-time, full-service DMV office and will continue working towards that goal," Bello says in a press release. "In the meantime, having a stable, five day a week location is a step in the right direction."

Monroe County hasn't had a full-time DMV office in the city since the state shut down the one it operated in 2003. Since then, the county has run mobile DMV units out of the parks office and City Place; currently, the units are open from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at City Place on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays, and at the parks offices on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
