Jacobs and Dunn Tire Encourage Motorists to “Renew Local"

Registration Renewal Envelopes Now Available at all Dunn Tire locations

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs and Dunn Tire announced today that motorists will now be able to find the signature green “Renew Local” envelopes at any of the Dunn Tire locations throughout Erie County.

The Clerk’s Office is asking motorists to “Renew Local” when renewing their auto registration in order to keep 12.7% of vehicle registration fees here in Erie County rather than sending 100% to Albany. Taxpayers should know that when they renew their registration locally, at any of the Erie County Auto Bureaus or mail their renewal directly to the County Clerk’s Office, the financial impact to the County would be upwards of an additional $1.5 million in revenue per year.

Jacobs Issues Warning on County Executive's 2014 Budget Estimates

Says Poloncarz is projecting faulty revenues for Auto Bureau

Erie County, NY – Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs is sounding an alarm after seeing the County Executive’s revenue estimates for the Erie County Auto Bureau for the 2014 budget year. “I am very concerned about these estimates, they are half a million more than my office projected for the Auto Bureau in our submission to the County Executive’s budget office,” said Jacobs. “I have put my concerns in writing to Comptroller Mychajliw, who is charged with reporting to the Legislature on the validity of the County Executive’s revenue estimates.”

“The Erie County Legislature needs to know that from the moment they receive the County Executive’s proposed 2014 budget that it is out of balance more than $550,000 because there is no way the Auto Bureau will hit the revenue amount the County Executive has put in his budget,” stated Jacobs.
