Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns will announce when the Northtowns Auto Bureau will begin Saturday service. Kearns is set to hold a press conference Thursday morning. The expanded hours will be the first expansion of weekend service in more than 10 years.
The announcement comes after 11 new staffers were hired in April. But County Executive Mark Poloncarz told County Clerk Mickey Kearns the changes were not necessary so soon after Kearns took office.
The Northtowns Bureau is the second office in the county to offer Saturday service. The Cheektowaga Bureau also has Saturday hours.
