Ciresi urges quick relocation of closed Pottstown Photo Center

POTTSTOWN, Oct. 13 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, announced that he spoke with PennDOT following last week’s closure of their Photo License Center in Pottstown and urged them to promptly find and open a new location in the Pottstown area.

“The Pottstown Photo License Center provided access to important photo services to many of my constituents,” Ciresi said. “I spoke with PennDOT and emphasized the importance of opening a new location to resume convenient access to these services as quickly as possible. PennDOT was receptive and assured me that they are actively working to find and reopen a new location in the area.”

The Pottstown Photo License Center was located at Commonwealth Auto Tags at 377 E. High St. PennDOT announced that they terminated their contract with Commonwealth Auto Tags for cause, closing the Pottstown Photo License Center effective close of business on Oct. 4. The closure does not affect other services provided by Commonwealth Auto Tags.
