The local Office of Motor Vehicles remains closed. A check with the state office on Thursday indicates no date has been set for the reopening. Offices were shutdown statewide a week ago by a ransomware attack on the state’s computer systems. Since then technicians have been working to bring computers back on line. According to the state website ExpressLane.org the nearest OMV office that is open is Shreveport – 9310 Normandie Drive.
Happy Thanksgiving. School is out until Monday. Banks and other facilities are closing on Thanksgiving day and observing altered holiday hours the rest of this week
