Nearly a dozen BMV branches across Indiana are closing because they’re short-staffed.
The cause? COVID-related problems and simply unfilled positions.
“Reallocations are needed due to unprecedented staffing shortages,” said Christine Meyer, Director of Communication for the Indiana BMV. “Approximately 12 percent of branch positions are not staffed daily because they are one of 60-70 unfilled positions or because of staff absence. Out of an abundance of caution the BMV has instituted policies requiring any staff member who is experiencing symptoms not to report to work. In addition, our staff is impacted by children and family members in quarantine.”
The locations that are temporarily closing:
- Evansville North
- Indianapolis (Madison Ave.)
- New Albany
- New Haven
They’ll be closed now until Oct. 2.
If you normally go to those locations, and need to visit the BMV, you’re encouraged to find an alternative branch nearby or make transactions online.
