GLENDALE— The Department of Motor Vehicles Glenoaks Boulevard branch, due to open Nov. 1 after a $900,000 facelift, will now be closed indefinitely due to limited staffing resources, officials announced Friday.
The Glendale branch, at 1335 W. Glenoaks Blvd., was one of three offices selected to close because its doors had already been shut for more than two months for scheduled renovations, DMV spokeswoman Jan Mendoza said.
The other two offices closing are in Santa Maria and West Covina.
"It really is a big deal, but those are the sign of the times," Mendoza said.
Officials had initially announced the Glendale branch would reopen Monday, but later pushed its launch date to Nov. 22.
Keeping the offices open proved to be a challenge for DMV officials, who had struggled with staffing issues and numerous vacancies, Mendoza said.
