Ellsworth residents who were accustomed to renewing their motor vehicle registrations online via Rapid Renewal will need to allow a little more time, and do it in person until May 2023.

It appears that the Rapid Renewal program is not compatible with the City's new software system that went into effect in May of 2022.

The State’s Rapid Renewal System requires a vehicle to be registered manually in TRIO (Ellsworth's new software system) before it can be done via rapid renewal in the future. After everyone makes it through this first year registering in person rapid renewal will be back to normal going forward.

The City Clerk's Office is open Monday - Friday 8 to 5, closed on Holidays.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
