Glendale requests state reopen DMV office
The Glendale City Council this week called on state officials to reopen the Department of Motor Vehicles branch on Glenoaks Boulevard, citing outrage from residents since it was closed indefinitely last month after a nearly $1-million face-lift.
The branch at 1335 W. Glenoaks Blvd. was one of three offices that were closed as the DMV grapples with reduced staffing amid the state budget crisis.
Each day the Glendale branch served about 1,200 customers who are now being directed to offices in Lincoln Park and Pasadena.
On Tuesday, the City Council approved a formal resolution urging state officials to reopen the office in response to what they described as outrage from local residents.
