Friday is a mandatory statewide unpaid closure for most state offices
The Oregon DMV headquarters and all DMV offices throughout the state will be closed Friday, March 19. The closure is the third of 10 statewide mandatory unpaid "furlough" days for employees scheduled through June 2011.
However, during these closures, customers still can do business with DMV by mail or online. Online services include most passenger vehicle registration renewals, change of address and notice of sale of your vehicle.
For a complete list of DMV's online services go to: www.OregonDMV.com/online.
DMV offices will reopen on their regularly scheduled days and times after the furlough day. For a complete list of DMV office hours, go to http://www.oregondmv.com/.
Under Oregon’s cost-saving furlough plan, state employees must take 10 to 14 unpaid days off – depending on their salary level – during the 2009-11 state budgetary period. Ten of those days are statewide closures for offices that do not provide emergency services or require round-the-clock staffing. State employees who are required to take additional unpaid furlough days are scheduling them in much the same way they schedule vacation days.
DMV is one of the state agencies that is required to observe the mandatory closures. The eight remaining statewide closures are all Fridays:
