Drivers, rejoice! The location for Independence’s Department of Motor Vehicles has been determined and approved. The new DMV will be located at 404 N. 14th St. The lease was approved Thursday by the Joint Committee on State Building Construction of the legislature. No additional staff will be hired in the move and the opening date has yet to be determined. Due to the closing of the Independence DMV, citizens from surround- ing towns have had to further their usual trek and travel as far as Neosho County to renew their license. Both DMV’s in Chanute and Parsons have been regularly full since the Independence DMV closed. In the meantime, Independence set up a temporary DMV where citizens can take driving tests or renew licenses. The temporary DMV is locat- ed on the second floor of Building D, the old Mercy Hospital, 200th block N. 14th St.
