YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning County Auto Title Department is open for business at Oakhill Renaissance Place.
The agency, the last to leave the county’s South Side Annex in the city’s Uptown District, opened today.
The title department, which has 17 employees and is under the jurisdiction of the county clerk of courts, closed at noon Friday at the annex, where it had been for 33 years, and moved to Oakhill over the Columbus Day holiday weekend.
Oakhill is the former Forum Health Southside Medical Center at 345 Oak Hill Ave.
The move had to be coordinated with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles because the title department is linked to the state’s computer system.
County commissioners will now sell or demolish the annex at 2801 Market St., which once housed the Sears and Treasure Island department stores.
The motor vehicle title issuance office is on Oakhill’s first floor near Entrance A, the same entrance used by those going to the county board of elections and veterans’ service commission.
