City gives up on plans for downtown license center
After nearly a year, the Farmington City Council has decided to abandon efforts to open a deputy registrar's office in city hall.
That means no license center for Farmington.
The city opened the deputy registrar's office in early March, 2011. It closed just days later, when Minnesota Department of Public Safety director of driver and vehicle services Patricia McCormack, denied the city's application to issue motor vehicle licenses and license plate tabs.
