LETTER: Nevada’s Keystone Kops bureaucracy

I sent my automobile registration renewal forms by mail to the DMV on Aug. 27. When I didn’t receive a reply within a month, I completed my renewal online and was charged a $16 late fee. On Oct. 21, almost two months later, my mail application was returned to me by the DMV stating that I had already registered my car online. I was initially early, but because of their slow response, I registered my car online and was charged a late fee. I did this to avoid driving an unregistered car.

I tried to contact the DMV, but I couldn’t get through. Of course they will blame COVID for the delay.

Also, regarding the state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation: A relative of mine is collecting unemployment in Maine. She received the full six weeks of President Donald Trump’s $300 supplemental unemployment payments several weeks ago. Here in Nevada, these supplemental payments have barely begun.

Gov. Steve Sisolak seems to do a good job telling everyone how to avoid getting COVID. but his agencies are inefficient at best and incompetent at worst. Take your pick. Lastly, how do I get my $16 late fee back, and how do I send the DMV my late fee charge?

Where is all the money going to come from to pay for all these freebies? Maybe free won’t end up being free after all. So who will pay when all is said and done?

I can guarantee that if Nevada had been called for Donald Trump, Adam Laxalt would not be saying a word about election integrity.
