Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Elizabethtown Driver Licensing Regional Office will operate in a new permanent location where Kentuckians will benefit from increased parking and a larger reception area. The new location will be open to the public on Monday, Feb. 5.

The temporary office at 1055 North Mulberry served approximately 5,000 Kentuckians each month. The new location at 916 North Mulberry will offer a more efficient workspace and an improved experience for guests.

“We are thrilled to have a permanent location for our Elizabethtown office,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Secretary Jim Gray. “We are committed to exploring ways to take our services to the next level, and this new office will do just that.”

Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time. Appointments at any regional office are available at https://www.drive.ky.gov, and walk-in customers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Driver testing in Hardin County is conducted by the Kentucky State Police (KSP). The KSP driver testing services in Hardin County will also be located at the new location but will have a separate entrance to streamline processing for both facilities. Applicants requiring written or skills testing must schedule an appointment online at assigned locations by visiting
https://kentuckystatepolice.gov/driver-testing/

“With increased parking and a larger waiting area, we’re not just moving; we’re evolving,” Department of Vehicle Regulations Commissioner Matt Cole said. “This enhanced environment is all about making our services more accessible and ensuring that every visitor feels comfortable throughout the issuance process.”

Kentuckians now have convenient options such as online scheduling for office appointments, and online or mail-in license renewal that were not available under Kentucky’s previous system of license issuance at local circuit court clerk offices. Kentuckians can choose between a standard-issue or REAL ID-compliant credential and a card valid for four years or eight years.

First-time REAL ID applicants must visit a KYTC regional office in person, with proof of identity, residence and social security. For a personalized list of required documents to bring when applying, visit https://realidky.com. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has set May 7, 2025, as the date by which a REAL ID or other forms of verified identification will be required for boarding a commercial airliner, entering a U.S. military base or entering a federal building where ID is currently required.

Field staff may measure any structures not in our records, and take pictures of any structures where the condition has changed since the last inspection.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEADE COUNTY PLANNING AND ZONING – PROPERTY MAINTENANCE ORDINANCE

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Business, Community, Government, Updates

Meade County has a Property Maintenance Ordinance, and a P&Z Field Representative whose responsibility is to investigate and resolve violations of the ordinance. Voluntary compliance by the violator with-in a stated amount of time, is the prime goal. The Field Representative can offer advice and possible assistance to accomplish the goal. However, when a violator does not bring the property into compliance, a citation (ticket) will be issued, with an associated fine.
Should the violator disagree with the citation, then they may bring their case before the Meade County Property Maintenance Board of Appeals. The Board may take several actions which include, but are not limited to, authorizing more time to bring the property into compliance, maintain/increase the fine.
Should the violator not agree with the Board’s decision, then they may hire a lawyer and appeal to the District Court.

  1. Code Enforcement always attempts contact with property owners. The Field Rep. generally allows at least 14 days, but in most cases 30 days to bring the property into compliance.
  2. The citation states your options and gives instructions if you disagree with the citation.
  3. Property owners who have received citations: Do Not attempt to contact the code enforcement officer who issued the citation. Follow the instructions on the citation.

PUBLIC NOTICE – EXTENSION OF 2024 JANUARY INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATION PLAN (IRP) REGISTRATIONS

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Special Events, Updates

RE: Extension of 2024 January IRP registrations
As Kentucky will experience an outage to allow for the installation of a new registration system, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Division of Motor Carriers, will provide an extension for any January 2024 IRP renewals until February 28, 2024. The expiration date and time is in effect until 12:01 AM EST, March 1, 2024. Extension as permitted and defined in the IRP Plan (page 17); “Extension means a period of time from the expiration date or end of a grace period during which registrants may operate on expired credentials by reason of inability of the base jurisdiction to provide current credentials”.
Carriers must adhere to all other state and Federal requirements as well as all other safety requirements. A copy of this memo must be carried in the vehicle.
Therefore, we ask that enforcement of each member jurisdictions refrain from acting against Kentucky carriers operating under the IRP registration of January 2024.
We apologize for the interruption in the registration process, but it’s necessary to bring our customers the upgraded system.
For questions or concerns, you can reach out to me at 502-782-7846 or e-mail at mary.morris@ky.gov.

PUBLIC NOTICE – PLATE TO CUSTOMER SYSTEM – EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2024

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Government, Special Events, Updates

Meade County Clerk’s Office

See below for important updates regarding our new vehicle registration system coming in January. Are you planning to sell or trade your car? Now, when you sell or trade your vehicle, you will keep your license plate. Kentucky is changing the way it handles plates. Starting in January the State will operate in the “Plate -to- Customer” format. In this new format, when you sell or trade your vehicle, you keep the license plate with the registration decal that you paid for at the renewal time. This change allows you the option to use the full 12 months of your paid registration.
If you buy another vehicle, the plate you remove from your sold or traded vehicle can be put on the newly purchased vehicle, but only after you transfer the plate to the newly purchased vehicle at your county clerk’s office.
Please remember your plate must be transferred to the new, or used vehicle that you purchase, before you drive with that plate.

PUBLIC NOTICE – MEADE COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE NEW AUTO RENEWAL SERVICE

Written by meadecounty. Posted in Community, Government, Updates

The Meade County Clerk’s Office notes that Kentucky will be implementing a vehicle system upgrade beginning on January 1, 2024, through January 8, 2024, with a day-to-day rollout for counties beginning on January 9, 2024. Please keep in mind that the county clerk’s office will not be open to the public for motor vehicle, boat or disabled parking permit renewals, new issuances or vehicle or boat transfers from December 30th – January 11th. During the system downtime we will be in the office answering phones and the Deed room and Land record services will still be available. Meade County’s scheduled rollout is January 10, 2024.

We will use January 10th and 11th to process all mail and dealer work and to familiarize ourselves with the new system. The office will reopen to the public on Friday January 12, 2024.

Reminder that December Renewals need to be done during the month of December and can be done through December 29th. Visit our office during December or renew online at drive.ky.gov. Online renewals will be available through December 27th so that they can be processed by December 29th.
Please know that January renewals cannot be done until January 2024.
2024 car taxes do not get uploaded until January. These 2024 taxes cannot be paid in advance.

The Meade County Courthouse has a scheduled Holiday closing for December 29th and January 1st; however, the Meade County Clerk office has decided to be open on December 29th and closed on January 1st and 2nd for the Holiday. We hope this will benefit those December renewals and vehicle transfers needing to be done before year end.

We apologize for any inconveniences that this is going to cause but know that the transition from a 45-year-old statewide system to a more modern and efficient system will better serve our public in the future. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we reopen the motor vehicle department with the adjustment to the new and improved system as well as the expected overload of renewals for the January backlog. Long lines may be expected in the beginning of this transition.

Thank you, Susan Masterson, Meade County Clerk
