Fruita DMV Office Re-Opens
The City of Fruita and Tina Peters, Mesa County Clerk and Recorder, announce the re-opening of the satellite office for the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) in Fruita City Hall. The public and media are invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at 11:45am.
The re-opening celebration will be held in the Fruita DMV office, located at 325 E. Aspen, in Fruita. The celebration will be hosted from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with regular DMV business to follow the festivities. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
“Thanks to the support of the City of Fruita, I’m excited to be able to open the Fruita office in the first quarter of 2019,” Peters said. “The feedback from citizens has been steady about their desire for Mesa County to have more than one DMV office.”
“It is a privilege to work with great partners to help make the City of Fruita a great place to live, Joel Kincaid, Fruita Mayor, said. “We have appreciated this partnership in the past with the Mesa County DMV and look forward to that continuing with the new office opening. This is a great service to our community and for those that live here.”
The Fruita DMV office will serve residents from the same office space it previously occupied, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The first full day of DMV business will be Thursday, March 14, 2019.
Fruita City Council has kept the previous DMV space underutilized in hopes the DMV would return. The City Hall office space is provided at no charge to the County and only a small monthly fee of $150 is incorporated into the lease agreement for janitorial services and utilities.
