BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The dreaded wait and long lines at the Jefferson County Courthouse could be cut in half by the end of the year. Several state, city, and county leaders met Monday morning to talk about a plan.
By paying a couple thousand dollars, local municipalities will now have the ability to renew vehicle tags at their city locations. Some leaders worry it won’t cut down the lines drastically because drivers do have the option to renew online. Others, think it’s a step in the right direction.
Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight says, “I’m encouraged by that and allow the cities to step up to the plate. And for us to share the technology. I’m encouraged by that.”
The plan is scheduled to take effect by October 1st. But, keep in mind, it’s for tag renewals, only.
