The RMV Goes "Green" in Milford
Patrick Administration Reopens Larger, Energy-Efficient Branch
(Milford, MA) - Registrar of Motor Vehicles Anne L. Collins today joined state and local leaders to officially reopen the RMV branch in Milford, cutting the ribbon on a fully renovated, state-of-the-art location that also boasts several energy conservation upgrades.
"Every change and improvement we made in the Milford branch was for customer convenience, comfort and safety," said Registrar Collins. "But this newly renovated branch also reflects Governor Patrick's commitment to make state agencies more responsible to the environment."
The Milford RMV, which serviced more than 96 thousand customers last year, doubled in size with environmentally-friendly building material made of recycled products. The lavatory fixtures include new motion sensor water-saving devices and the lighting has been replaced with energy-efficient fittings that are motion operated.
"I am delighted that my constituents will now be served by this renovated facility that will better serve the needs of the motoring public," said Senator Richard T. Moore, D-Uxbridge. "Offices of state agencies, such as the Registry of Motor Vehicles, ought to both favorably reflect respect for our dedicated state employees and be welcoming, respectful and helpful to the public who seek the state's services. This renovated facility should meet that test with high marks, and I hope the people of greater Milford will agree!"
Rep. John V. Fernandes, D-Milford added, "I am pleased that the renovation to the Registry was completed in a timely fashion and that this valuable service will again be conveniently available to the people of the Milford area. The Registry is an agency that almost every citizen in the area utilizes. It is my sincere hope and expectation that this renovated facility will help make every visit a speedy and professional interaction for staff and customers."
For the first time, the Milford facility will be able to offer permit tests for class D, commercial and motorcycle licenses. Four new touch-screen ATS kiosks have been installed in a quiet testing room. More dual work stations have also been added which give clerks greater flexibility in meeting shifting demands for licenses or registrations.
Currently eight employees staff the Milford office which also houses the Mass Highway's permitting section for overweight vehicles.
The Milford branch will be open 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Customers can view current wait times for Milford and all 35 branches at www.massrmv.com.
