Johnson County Motor Vehicle Offices in Olathe and Mission will be closed to the public on Mondays, effective Sept. 14, to allow staff to process applications submitted through the new Title Drop Off Service. Since April, more than 13,000 title applications have been dropped off, accounting for 30% of all title applications received. Because the offices were closed for 33 days this spring, a backlog of title applications was created that staff have been working overtime and weekends to process.
To address this backlog, the offices will be closed to the public on Mondays to focus on processing dropped off applications and mailed in transactions. Staff will still be available by email or phone on Monday to support county residents. More information is available in this news release.
