Rochester is about to have a downtown DMV office...for the first time since 2003. That's when the New York State DMV closed its downtown Rochester office.
Assemblyman Joe Morelle says the state is supplying $425,000 to fund construction of a new one. He appeared this afternoon with Monroe County Clerk Adam Bello and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren to announce the new office.
Mayor Warren says it will be at 200 East Main Street, co-housed with the city Parking Violations and Traffic Violations agencies. City Council will have to approve the deal.
