WyCo Treasurer's Office to be closed in for vehicle-related matters in early May


The Treasurer's Office in Wyandotte County will be closed for vehicle-related business from May 1-8.

Other office services and business will remain open, but the vehicle registration process and other vehicle-related services will not be offered as the state of Kansas is updating its DMV system.

Because of the delay, the May vehicle registrations will be mailed out later than usual. Those with May registration dates can expect their letters during the last week of April.

“The switchover might inconvenience some of our customers, but it’s a necessary part of the transition,” said Debbie Pack, Wyandotte County Treasurer. “All we can ask is that our customers are patient with us while we work through this change.”

Meanwhile, for those with registrations expiring this month who want to renew online, they are required to do so by April 26. The state Website will also be closed until May 7.

More from a release:
Kansas Web-Tags will shut down at midnight April 26 and will not be back online until May 7. The website already warns customers that online renewals must be made at least 10 days prior to a registration’s expiration date, the last day of the month, for the customer to be guaranteed a timely renewal.

Vehicle owners whose registrations expire in April, and who want to renew online, need to do so by midnight April 26. Otherwise, they are encouraged to renew in person at the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City Kansas Treasurer’s Office to be sure their renewal is processed by end of day April 30.

Registration renewals due in May, which are printed to be compatible with the new system, will be mailed later than usual. Typically, registration renewals are mailed within the first two weeks of the month prior to their expiration. This cycle, May renewals will mail the fourth week of April.

May registrations can’t be renewed online until after May 7. However, they can be renewed by mail and in person, but not during conversion between May 1 and 8.
