Registry of Motor Vehicles New Glasgow Office to Reopen on Monday, Dec. 10

Investigation into oil fumes experienced today, Dec. 7, at the New Glasgow Registry of Motor Vehicle Office has determined that the office is safe for business. The office will reopen at 8:30 a.m., Monday, Dec. 10.

Originally it was thought that oil was leaking into the office; however, the office has been checked out by experienced professionals and there is no evidence of any problems.

Oil spilled on a customer’s clothing may have been the possible source of the smell.

The office was closed as a safety precaution to both staff and customers until an investigation could be completed.
