License Bureau to Discontinue Friday Drive-Thru Pickup of Transactions

The Wright County License Bureau has announced that it will be discontinuing Friday curbside pickup service of non-driver’s license-related transactions.

The program, which began in mid-May while public counters to the Wright Government Center, was deemed a success, with almost 300 items picked up, but, as License Bureau Supervisor Becky Aanerud explained, with the counters back open, there wasn’t available staff to manage both inside and outside activity.

“The program went extremely well considering it was just something one of our employees thought would be a good idea,” Aanerud said. “With fishing season open and more people heading to cabins and lakes, we knew that there would be an increased need for people to get tabs for campers, ATVs and boats. Because our public counter was closed, we had the staff to work the parking lot Friday afternoons. Now that we’re back open and processing driver’s licenses along with the tabs and title transfers, we don’t have the staffing to do both. A lot of people were happy with the program, but it was intended to close when our counter opened back up and we started doing driver’s licenses again.”

For the next two weeks, the method of obtaining tabs, plates and title transfers will remain how it has been since mid-March – U.S. Mail or drop boxes at the north entrance to the Wright County Government Center, a drop box near the main reception desk on the first floor of the Government Center or a drive-up drop box in the alley along the east side of the building.

The week of June 22 is the expected delivery date for a retrofitted walk-up window that will be installed on the south wall of the License Bureau at the parking deck of the Government Center. Once installed, all non-driver’s license transactions can take place with License Bureau staff for those who wish immediate pickup.
