HARRISBURG – As part of their town’s Knotweed Festival on Saturday, Aug. 13, the Blairsville Police Department and state Rep. Jim Struzzi (R-Indiana) will be partnering to help constituents with free replacement of license plates that have become difficult to read.
“A registration plate is deemed illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet or if the registration plate shows any blistering, peeling, discoloration or loss of reflectivity,” said Blairsville Police Chief Louie Sacco. “It’s an honor that Rep. Struzzi is willing to work together to provide this valuable public safety-related service to area residents.”
Struzzi’s license plate event takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the festival, which will be held on West Market Street near the Diamond.
“Copies of form MV-44 will be available for plate holders to fill out, and members of my staff will handle getting them to PennDOT for submission,” Struzzi added. “It will be a quick turnaround for anyone operating a vehicle with an illegible license plate and dealing directly with local law enforcement allows us to avoid the usual plate replacement fee.”
The festival itself begins with a 10 a.m. parade and continues until 9 p.m.
Questions about this or any legislative issue may be directed to Struzzi’s office at 1-724-465-0220.
