Washington County will receive almost $400,000 from the state to compensate it for the extra costs of implementing the Minnesota Licensing and Registration System at its deputy registrar offices.
The County Board accepted the grants June 25, and approved liability releases.
The 2019 Legislature authorized the state to compensate deputy registrars for costs related to the MNLARS implementation that began in 2017. To be eligible for the state grants, the county was required to approve agreements accepting the compensation.
Washington County is eligible for grants for its three deputy registrar offices in Forest Lake for $133,117.72, in Stillwater for $106,664.89; and Woodbury for $157,751.94.
