The Ottawa County commissioners are asking for a two-year delay to the planned closing of a Bureau of Motor Vehicle office in Oak Harbor and would like to see a request by the county clerk of courts to open a title office at the Oak Harbor site be granted.
 
The commissioners are challenging the projected cost savings the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles claims it will realize by closing the office and are asking the bureau’s parent department, the Ohio Department of Public Safety, to conduct an analysis that weighs the cost savings for the state with the increased cost to customers and the economic impact on area communities.
