County Wants Bigger Percentage of NYS DMV Fees

Local News

Cortland County may join the effort to keep more money from handling the business of the state DMV.

Currently, the county is allowed to keep 12.7% of the state fees it collects, a percentage that hasn’t changed since 1999.

At the Thursday morning meeting of the Cortland County Legislature’s Judiciary and Public Safety committee, members will be asked to support a State Senate effort to raise the county’s share of these transactions to 25%.

The committee may also consider creating a temporary position at the DMV, lasting until August, coinciding with a longtime employee’s retirement.

If approved, both items would be added to the agenda for the next full legislature meeting.
