Gary offers plan for BMV branch

City employees would staff facility; state would provide equipment, training.

Gary's mayor has proposed having city employees staff that city's only Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branch, while other communities are also working on plans to save services at branches facing closure.

Gary Mayor Scott King submitted a plan to the Daniels administration on Tuesday, saying his office reached an agreement with the landlord of the current branch to extend its lease, which was set to expire Saturday -- the day the office is to close.

Under King's plan, the city would staff the office, but the state would pay the city $36,000 a year and the BMV would also provide equipment to run the branch and would train staff members.
