County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo Announces E-Z Pass On-the-Go Tags Are Now Available in Local DMV Offices
Wed, Mar 20 2013
Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo announced today that NYS Thruway E-Z Pass On-the-Go tags are now available for purchase at Greece, Henrietta and Irondequoit DMV Branch Offices. Customers are able to pay for their tags with cash, check or credit card.
County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo said, “Offering E-Z Passes compliments the core business model of the County Clerk’s Office which is to provide convenient services to the residents of Monroe County. The program will also enhance the “Renew Monroe!” program I established which encourages County residents to do business directly with the County Clerk’s Office to keep our money working here at home and taxes as low as possible.”
The Thruway Authority allows for the sale of E-ZPass On-the-Go pre-paid tags at private and municipal locations as part of the E-ZPass program. In September last year, Dinolfo sought and received County Legislature approval to enter into an agreement with the New York State Thruway Authority to sell the tags. Similar to other E-ZPass retail locations, when purchasing the tag in the local DMV branch office, the cost of the tag is $25.00.
Once an E-ZPass tag is purchased, the customer has immediate access to the first $15.00 and then must register the tag with the Thruway Authority to utilize the remaining $10.00 of the pre-loaded $25.00 amount for toll fees.
