Both Cheektowaga & Tonawanda offices will be closed Dec. 26
Erie County Clerk Michael P. Kearns announced the Erie County Auto Bureaus in Cheektowaga and Tonawanda will be closed to the public Saturday, Dec. 26, due to the anticipated inclement weather.
“For the safety of our staff and customers, auto bureau operations will be closed the Saturday after Christmas at our Cheektowaga and Tonawanda offices due to the winter weather advisory and the lake effect snow totals predicted to begin Christmas Day and throughout the early morning hours on Saturday,” he said.
Customers with previously scheduled appointments were notified by email and asked to reschedule their appointments at a later date by going to www.erie.gov/clerk/autobureau. At this time, all offices are currently accepting next-day appointments. Those who have a CDL or permit test appointments will be contacted individually to reschedule their reservation.
“My concern is to keep the public off the roads in the early morning when driving conditions may be most hazardous and when we have the majority of our appointments,” Kearns said. “In addition, due to current COVID-19 concerns and social distancing protocols, we do not want to our offices to be overcrowded with stranded motorists.”
