County Clerk’s Offices across the state will undergo an update to the state vehicle information database—but that does mean that some services will be unavailable for a couple of weeks at the start of the new year.
In an update to Todd Fiscal Court Wednesday morning, Todd County Clerk Cindy O’Bryan says all county clerk offices, including Todd and Christian Counties, will temporarily pause in-person and online motor and vessel-related services in early January while the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet migrate information to a new customer-centric system. That process will likely take some time, as roughly 40 years of data has to migrate to this new system.
O’Bryan encouraged citizens that need to do vehicle registrations, renewals or transfers to get them done by December 29, as those services likely won’t be back online for approximately ten days.
Other services of Clerk’s Office, such as elections, marriage licenses, deeds and much more, will remain open for business as usual during this time. O’Bryan also requested the Todd Fiscal Court cover the office’s expenses during this time until they are reimbursed by the state, which was approved unanimously.
In other action, magistrates rejected both bids for emergency radio system equipment so new bids can be crafted that better clarify what equipment is needed to update and maintain dispatch consoles.
