Area Motorists Receiving Refunds From BMV

‘Tis the season for giving, and the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles seems to be in the holiday spirit. With just a few mouse clicks, many Hoosier motorists are finding that they are a recipient of a refund.

The BMV is crediting drivers for overcharges that were discovered in a recent class-action lawsuit. In June, the organization announced lower fees for new and renewed driver’s licenses after finding a miscalculation.

Every motorist that renewed or received a new license since March 2007 is due a credit, except those that were 75 or older when the license was renewed.

WRBI caught up with some local residents who applied for the online credit and saw refunds ranging from $0.28 to $9.00.

Refunds can also be automatically credited to those drivers who qualify the next time they visit the BMV for a driver’s license, license plate renewal or other business. The refunds can also be requested by calling 800-248-0084.

The deadline to request a check is December 15, 2016.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
