Will post all “Clerk Plates” on county website and make available for all citizens
Erie County, NY - A long-held traditional perk of County Clerk’s has been the ability to dole out a limited number of “Clerk Plates” with such desirable prefixes as “EC or ER.”
County Clerk Chris Jacobs wants to end this practice and plans on listing all available plates on the county website with a simple request form. “Plates will then be awarded on a first come first serve basis,” stated Jacobs. “My goal here is to remove any perception of favoritism in awarding these plates.”
Prefixes other than “EC” and “ER” that the Clerk has available are “B, BF, BL, BU, CE, and E” and are the same cost as a typical license plate which is $28.75. Approximately 70 of these plates are currently available. The “Clerk Plates” can only be issued for passenger vehicles and are not obtainable for commercial vehicles, motorcycles or trailers.
