ECC auto bureau lease extended five years

HAMBURG — Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced that he and Jack Quinn, President of Erie Community College, recently negotiated a five-year extension of the agreement that allows the Erie County Auto Bureau to operate a satellite office on ECC’s South Campus. The agreement has received approval from the Erie County Legislature and the ECC Board of Trustees.
According to Jacobs, the ECC South Auto Bureau processes over 80,000 transactions a year. “Keeping this satellite location operating was a priority, in order to continue to serve the motorists of Orchard Park and the surrounding areas,” said Jacobs.
“ECC is happy to partner with Erie County Clerk Jacobs to deliver services to students of Erie County,” said Quinn. “This new agreement is good for the college and good for the residents and we congratulate and thank Chris Jacobs for his creative ideas.”
Jacobs also pointed out that having a long-term agreement in place allows his office to seek capital funding from the county in the 2015 budget process, to improve the handicapped entrance, access to parking and interior improvements that will expand the customer service and testing areas.
This agreement marks the fourth such lease negotiation for Jacobs in his tenure as Erie County Clerk. He recently signed new agreements for the Cheektowaga, Evans and Eastern Hills Mall Auto Bureau locations and will begin the same process in the coming months for the Northtown Plaza office in Amherst.
