GOSHEN – Orange County is going to purchase a mobile motor vehicle office to bring services to residents who cannot get to the three county clerk’s offices – in Goshen, Middletown and Newburgh.

The county legislature, Thursday, approved spending $220,000 in ARPA funds for the vehicle.

Majority Leader Thomas Faggione, whose district includes the City of Port Jervis, said this unit will be a plus for residents of western Orange County since that area lost a DMV office a number of years ago.

Newburgh Legislator Genesis Ramos said the mobile unit will serve benefit residents who do not live in the areas where permanent offices are located.

“One of the things all of us care about on the legislature is access and how can we make our services accessible to folks across the county. I look forward to seeing not just how we implement it, but as we do implement it, how it can continue improving services throughout the county,” she said.

The counties of Sullivan and Ulster also have a traveling DMV unit. Those counties only have one county clerk’s office each.
