Instead Of Cuts, St. Lawrence County Lawmakers Add DMV Positions
Faced with having her budget slashed, St. Lawrence County Clerk Mary Lou Rupp instead convinced legislators to add two positions to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for the coming year.
The new positions will help generate additional revenue by processing downstate vehicle registrations for New York City-area car dealerships.
Rupp says she expects the county's DMV operation to generate just under $2 million for county coffers in 2013 by handling the downstate registrations.
Last year, the county brought in $1.3 million.
