EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – NJ Sen. Vince Polistina, Assemblyman Don Guardian and Assemblywoman Claire Swift (all R-Atlantic), announced the re-opening of the Motor Vehicle Commission’s location at Harbor Square shopping center in Cardiff for all transactions.

“Since COVID, Atlantic County residents have been forced to travel significant distances due to the closure of the Cardiff agency for vehicle transactions,” Polistina said in a press release. “I’m happy to see the response by the MVC and their willingness to listen to the residents of Atlantic County.”

The legislators sent a request in May to then-MVC Chairwoman Sue Fulton requesting the agency return to full service following the COVID-19 pandemic. Acting Chair and Chief Administrator Trish Littles-Floyd announced the reopening on Dec. 9.

“We are happy to see that engaging in dialogue, and not divisive finger pointing, can lead to successful results,” Guardian said. “We brought our issues to the agency, and while they didn’t solve the problems overnight, they responded and enabled us to ease the burden of our residents.”

“Unfortunately, many don’t have the ability to travel during the week due to personal and professional obligations,” Swift added. “Now, having their home county’s MVC location open for full service again, many won’t have to choose between earning a day’s pay and completing a vehicle transaction an agency.”

The legislators reminded any resident in need of an appointment to visit
