LOCKPORT—County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski said this morning that a statewide computer outage that first occurred Wednesday afternoon and is affecting multiple agencies continues to be a problem, limiting what local Department of Motor Vehicles offices can do—but that they will be open to assist the public and answer questions.


“We are still waiting for an estimate of when our computers will be back online from the state Office of Information Technology Services,” Jastrzemski said. “In the meantime, our DMV clerks will assist the public to the extent they are able, but nearly every service that requires an uplink with the state’s servers is currently on hold.”


The county’s three DMV sites, located at 111 Main St., Lockport, 1001 11th St., Niagara Falls, and 500 Wheatfield St., North Tonawanda, will be open at 9 a.m. The public is urged to delay their visits until computer service is restored, although clerks will answer the public’s questions and assist with matters not requiring a computer uplink.
