GLENDALE — The newly-renovated Department of Motor Vehicles branch on Glenoaks Boulevard is slated to reopen next month after being temporarily shuttered last year amid state budget woes.
DMV officials announced last week that the branch would reopen on April 25 after it was closed indefinitely in November following a $900,000-renovation.
At the time, DMW officials said they had to close the branch at 1335 W. Glenoaks Blvd. and two other offices due to reduced staffing stemming from the state’s budget crisis. Gov. Jerry Brown continues to wrangle with the state legislature over how to close a multi-billion-dollar budget gap, but DMV spokesman Steve Haskins said the agency had managed to readjust its staffing to reopen the Glendale and Hayward offices.
