Mail DMV Renewals to the Local Office
Monticello, NY – After mailing in their license and registration renewals, NYS Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) customers have reported long delays in receiving their documentation back from the State offices in Albany and Utica.
“Residents may not realize that they can mail those same renewal forms in to us at the Sullivan County DMV Office – and they’ll get what they need quicker than mailing to a State office,” notes County Clerk Russell Reeves, who oversees the local DMV operations. “This only applies to mailed renewals for licenses and registrations.”
“What’s good about handling these locally is that Sullivan County retains 12.5% of each transaction amount, whereas we get nothing if it all goes directly through the State,” he explains. “So in addition to faster service by mail, doing your DMV business locally brings revenue back to your home County.”
The mailing address is Sullivan County DMV, 100 North Street, Monticello, NY 12701.
While appointments are required to visit the DMV office in the Government Center, Reeves affirms his staff remain available to assist with any transactions people need. Appointments are typically available within a few days and can only be made online at https://sullivanny.us/Departments/Clerk/DMV.
Time for Spring Cleaning, Sullivan County!
Roadside Litter Pluck Returns: April 1st through June 30th
Monticello, NY – The Sullivan County Legislature is pleased to announce that Sullivan County’s Annual Roadside Litter Pluck Event will take place from April 1 through June 30, 2021.
The County will waive the waste disposal fee for roadside litter plucked bags, through the County’s Parks, Recreation and Beautification Department and the Division of Public Works.
Parks, Agriculture & Sustainability Policy Committee Chair and District 6 Legislator Luis Alvarez encourages County residents to check with their local municipalities, as there are several organized litter pluck events being planned throughout the County.
“Participation in a town- or village-organized litter pluck event is a great opportunity for our residents to help combat litter at a local level,” he affirmed.
“We need to look our best, and Litter Pluck is a hassle-free, cost-free way to spruce up our communities – and a great way to get out of the house to cure that COVID-induced ‘cabin fever’!” added District 7 Legislator Joe Perrello, chair of the Public Works Committee.
Residents who wish to participate in the County’s Roadside Litter Pluck may pick up their free labeling stickers (which adhere to clear garbage bags to identify them as roadside litter) along with program guidelines on or after March 22 at their town or village hall or County-operated transfer station.
While no coupons are required, all Roadside Litter Plucked refuse must be placed in clear bags and an event sticker adhered to the bag. Participants will be asked to register at the County-operated Transfer Station at the time of disposal. Please follow all required social distancing guidelines.
For more information about Litter Pluck, please call Sullivan County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Beautification at 845-807-0287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
