Secretary of State offices in Manistique, Munising adjusting hours, sharing staff
FEBRUARY 25, 2010
Preserving quality customer service is constant goal
The Manistique and Munising Secretary of State offices will share a staff
person and switch to a part-time schedule starting Monday, March 1, reflecting
constricted state budgets and fewer transactions conducted at each office,
Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land announced today.
"To preserve quality customer service, we are continuing to use our limited
resources as effectively as possible," Land said. "We have used this model
successfully in other areas to get the best service possible while stretching
every dollar further. Besides service at the counter, customers also have the
option of renewing their vehicle and watercraft registrations online, through
the mail or from a touchtone telephone."
The Manistique office at 300 Walnut St. in the Schoolcraft County Courthouse
will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with
lunchtime closures from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. The Munising office at 418 Mill
St. will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays, with a lunchtime closure from
12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, with a
lunchtime closure from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
As part of the change, one staff person will operate the two offices. Neither
office will relocate.
Other counties served by part-time offices are Lake, Montmorency, Osceola and
