Interested groups or individuals will have until Sept. 27 to bid to operate the Aurora License Office.
Denise Blauvelt, the current Aurora License Office agent, will no longer be the agent for the office, but she will stay until a new agent is selected. The office will remain open until a new agent is chosen.
Alana M. Barragán-Scott, director of the Missouri Department of Revenue, explained how the bidding process will work.
"People or groups interested in managing the license office will have until Sept. 27 to respond to the Office of Administration with a bid," she said. "All of the bids are then evaluated by a review team at the Department of Revenue, and the proposal that scores best in the areas of customer service, business experience, office location and other criteria is the one that is chosen."
During fiscal year 2010, which ran from July 1, 2009, to June 30, 2010, the Aurora office conducted 25,155 transactions and generated $85,982 in agent processing fees. The current office is located at 316 E. Church St. in Aurora. Potential bidders can propose to keep the office at the current address or submit another location in Aurora.
