Volusia County’s Tag and Title Office is one step closer to its new home in Daytona Beach after the County Council approved a construction contract on Tuesday to renovate the office space.
Volusia County has four Tag and Title facilities – in Daytona Beach, DeLand, Orange City and New Smyrna Beach – where the public comes to title and register vehicles and pay taxes. The Daytona Beach office, previously housed in the county’s East Volusia administrative center on North Beach Street, was displaced after the building sustained significant damage from Hurricane Irma in September 2017.
The Tag and Title Office has been temporarily housed in the Ocean Center since the storm damage forced closure of the North Beach Street building. That temporary arrangement will be coming to a close after the county agreed to renovate approximately 5,340 square feet of space at 1845 Holsonback Drive in Daytona Beach, where Florida Department of Health offices are also located. On Tuesday, the council approved a $588,000 contract with Crunch Construction of Daytona Beach to demolish and reconfigure the space in the Holsonback building to accommodate the Tag and Title Office. The work is expected to take approximately four months to complete. The county is using insurance proceeds from its Hurricane Irma fund to pay for the work.
The county’s Human Services opened an office in the Holsonback building last week.
