JAMESTOWN – While New York State’s Department of Motor Vehicles has run out of registration stickers, those looking to renew in-person at DMV locations in Chautauqua County are in luck.
County Clerk Larry Barmore says if you plan to renew your registration online or by mail to Albany, a four-to-six-week delay is expected, but that is not the case locally.
Barmore explains his DMV offices have a supply of over 10,000 stickers and if you renew in person at one of the three offices countywide, or use the drop box or mail to a local office, you can get your window sticker without delay.
As an extra benefit, he explains, Chautauqua County keeps 12.7 percent of the registration fee, and this money is used to keep taxes low.
The county DMVs are located on Third Street in Jamestown, Vineyard Drive in Dunkirk and at the County Clerk’s Office in Mayville.
The state has not explained why they don’t have any stickers; however the Clerk says it appears that someone forgot to order them and now customers will have to wait.
