Area Legislators Announce Re-Opening Of New Milford DMV Office

September 3, 2003

Senator Andrew Roraback, R-Goshen, Representative Clark Chapin, R-New Milford, and Representative Mary Ann Carson, R-New Fairfield, today announced that the state Department of Motor Vehicles will re-open its New Milford branch several months after closing it due to budget constraints.

The local DMV office, located at the Fleet Bank, 100 Park Lane, will be open the second Wednesday of each month from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and from 1:45 p.m. to 5 p.m. The date of the reopening for this office is October 8th. License transactions processed by the New Milford Photo License Center are license renewals, duplicate licenses and name changes.

“While it would have been preferable to have this service restored on a weekly basis, I am still pleased that the people of New Milford will have this convenience available to them once a month,” said Representative Chapin.

“In a year when budget news has been nearly always bleak, I am delighted that the DMV has listened to the people of New Milford and restored this much needed service,” said Senator Roraback.

“I am pleased to see the DMV has recognized that this is a facility that needs to reopen. I want to thank the commissioner of DMV and Governor Rowland for making this happen,” said Representative Carson.
