GC driver’s license office remains open

In an email to the Sky-Hi News, Grand County Clerk and Recorder Sara Rosene expressed that some citizens are concerned that the County Motor Vehicle Office is closing following the death of Linda Moore. Rosene would like to stress that the office is not closing. The State Driver License office is located in the County Administration Building, and has been run by the State Department of Revenue for many years. The Department of Revenue was moving toward closing the office which would mean Grand County Citizens would have to go to Steamboat Springs, Glenwood Springs, Evergreen, or Frisco for driver’s license services. The county Clerk and Recorder’s office, however, will be taking over the responsibilities of the driver license office.

“My employees and I understand that as county government it is our role to serve the citizens of the county to the best of our ability,” Rosene said, “There are few counties in Colorado where the County Clerk and Recorder has offered to take on the work of the state in order to assure that its citizens have reasonable access to that service. I have awesome employees.” Rosene said the Clerk and Recorder’s office still has some training to complete, so they will not officially take over until February of 2017.
