Repairs Coming to State-Run Motorist Database
West Palm Beach, FL - - - Anne M. Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector serving Palm Beach County, announces a major Florida DHSMV overhaul to improve a state database used for driver license renewals and motor vehicle registrations.
Gannon and other Florida Tax Collectors learned about planned improvements during a Florida DHSMV conference call. According to the department, the Florida Agency for State Technology will install new database storage with a faster response time in early 2017. It’s also replacing DHSMV hardware by June 2017.
“Chronic equipment breakdowns are frustrating and unfair to Palm Beach County citizens,” said Gannon. “This upgrade is long overdue, and I’m thankful the Florida Legislature finally committed to fund the improvements.”
The Florida Legislature set aside $6.5 million for a new DHSMV technology system. Server issues have presented challenges to Florida Tax Collectors since April 2016. In Palm Beach County, hundreds of people each week are forced to wait or must return another day due to malfunctions or intermittent delays.
