BUREAU ACCEPTING CUSTOMERS, BUT NOT CASH

Editor's note: An earlier report stating the facility closed at noon was based on incorrect information faxed by the Police Department.
Sept. 20, 2002 – While the Motor Vehicle Bureau personnel in Sub Base are inspecting vehicles, administering road tests and filling out paperwork as usual, as of 1 p.m. Friday the agency was not able to accept money.
Lawrence Olive, bureau director, said that a problem with the Finance Department's computers was to blame. He said the Motor Vehicle Bureau's collection computers are tied in to those at Finance to keep track of payments.
Those with business at the bureau on St. Thomas will "just have to leave their paperwork and pay on Monday," Olive said.
He expects everything to be running smoothly by then.
The Motor Vehicle Bureau facility on St. John was not affected since its staff uses a manual system. The St. Croix facility also was not affected.
