Change of hours at DeQuincy OMV office

The following is a news release from the Louisiana State Police:

Due to the unfortunate, recent passing of the office manager, and sole employee, the DeQuincy OMV location has changed its office hours.

Effective immediately, the DeQuincy OMV location (101 South Pine Street, DeQuincy, LA) will be open from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only.

Department of Public Safety Superintendent, Colonel Mike Edmonson, stated today, "We are saddened by the loss of Cathy Mears and we want to continue to provide services to the DeQuincy area.  The total amount of transactions of this location clearly justify leaving this site open.  The most plausible, immediate solution was to modify the days of availability so the inconvenience to the public would be minimized."

The nearest full-time location is located in Sulphur (940 Beglis Parkway) and is open 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday (excluding holidays).

Additionally, OMV continues to improve the Department's Website by increasing the ability of customers to conduct business through the Web and reducing the need to report to the field offices via OMV.DPS.STATE.LA.US, featuring the ease and convenience of ExpressLane.

For any other questions concerning OMV, the following phone number is also available to the public:  (225) 925-6146.

    Less humid Wednesday!Less humid Wednesday!

    A cold front will move through Southwest Louisiana late Tuesday or early Wednesday.  This will bring noticeably drier air back to our area and that means we get a break from the humidity!  But it will also bring scattered showers and thunderstorms tonight.  The timing looks to be between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday.  The risk of severe weather is very low, but like last night, it is not zero!

    It will take yet another chunk of tax dollars to complete a road and canopy at Prien Lake Elementary in Lake Charles. The student pick-up/drop-off area is needed to improve traffic congestion on Nelson Road. However, Calcasieu Parish taxpayers are on the hook for an additional $33,153 because of dirt issues.
