State to offer tornado victims services

The state announced Tuesday that victims of Sunday’s tornadoes will be offered some services for the next 30 days at no charge.

Those services are: duplicate certificate of title, duplicate vehicle registration, duplicate driver’s license and duplicate state ID card, according to a news release from Secretary of State Jesse White’s office.

White said his office will be offering priority title service on titles, duplicate titles and corrected titles. The fees for these services also will be waived. Motorists may apply in person at their nearest Driver Services facility, according to the news release.

A law effective in July 2010 gave that office the authority to waive such fees for residents impacted by natural disasters and living in counties that have been declared disaster areas by the governor. Grundy County is one of 13 that have been given that declaration.

The priority service allows the office to process title requests within two days.

For information, motorists may contact the Secretary of State’s general hotline at 800-252-8980. Motorists with questions about the priority title service may call 217-524-7889.
