Ward 3 E-Newsletter: March 2018

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

We are slowly getting closer to Spring. Yesterday was Daylight Savings Time, as friendly reminder it might also be a good idea to check all batteries in the smoke detectors in your home to make sure they work. City government remains relatively busy with a number of things to report on below.

Have a great week!

Around Ward 3

FYI Ohio Driver’s License and ID Changes Coming July

Ohio driver’s licenses and identification cards will be mailed instead of issued at license bureaus beginning July 2, 2018 the state has recently announced. The State has made this change to provide greater security protection. People still have to go to a deputy registrar license agency to renew or apply for a license or ID, but they will be issued a temporary proof of transaction. The license or card will be received by mail about 10 days later. Licenses and ID cards also will have a new look with greater security features. Read More.
