Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs and Dunn Tire announced recently that motorists will now be able to find the signature green “Renew Local” envelopes at any of the Dunn Tire locations throughout Erie County.
The Clerk’s Office is asking motorists to “Renew Local” when renewing their auto registration in order to keep 12.7% of vehicle registration fees here in Erie County rather than sending 100% to Albany. Taxpayers should know that when they renew their registration locally, at any of the Erie County Auto Bureaus or mail their renewal directly to the County Clerk’s Office, the financial impact to the County would be upwards of an additional $1.5 million in revenue per year.
Jacobs stated “Our hope is that by making our signature green envelopes more easily accessible, it will increase the number of vehicle owners who renew locally.” Motorists can simply drop the completed renewal form, along with their check payable to the Erie County Clerk, in any mailbox, using the postage-paid envelope.
“The additional revenues generated supports local Auto Bureau operations, along with helping to pay for road and bridge repair, social and senior services, and programs important to this community, like our public libraries,” said Jacobs.Top
