Registry branch at City Hall open five days a week
Registrar Daniel A. Grabauskas joined Mayor James Rurak and Greater Haverhill area legislators for a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning to open the newly expanded full service Registry branch office at Haverhill City Hall.
The Cellucci-Swift Administration is dedicated to improving Registry services in the Merrimack Valley and across the state. said Registrar Grabauskas. Opening this office not only provides better service for the citizens in the Haverhill area, it reduces the burden on our Lawrence and Lowell branches.
Today Haverhills Registry expands to a five day full service operation; since 1991 the Haverhill office has been open two days a week in a senior center.
Senator James Jajuga, Chairman of the Joint Committee on Public Safety, has been instrumental in the Registrys statewide efforts to streamline operations and increase efficiency.
I am thrilled that the City of Haverhill now has its own full service Registry up and running again. The citizens of Haverhill and its surrounding communities deserve their own state of the art facility, said Senator James Jajuga. I applaud Governor Cellucci, Registrar Grabauskas and Mayor Rurak for their collaborative efforts in making this day possible.
Mayor Ruraks office worked closely with the Registry to develop a first of its kind partnership between the Registry and a Commonwealth City.
Mayor Rurak stated, This office opens with one premise only: We hope to service better the public who come to the Registry for matters of crucial importance to their livelihood.
Open Monday - Friday 8:00am - 4:00pm, the new full service Registry Branch at Haverhill City Hall offers licensing, registration, suspensions, written tests and written commercial drivers license (CDL) tests (8:00am-2:00pm).
