Birth certificate annex office opens at Midland DDS

Posted: Updated:

A new birth certificate office could help you next time you visit the Department of Driver Services office in Midland.

The Department of Public Health partnered with the DDS to install the birth certificate annex in the parking lot.

Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and Dr. Beverley Townsend with the health department cut the ribbon along with Deputy Commissioner of the state DDS Spencer Moore.

Moore says 73,000 people visit the DDS in Midland every month. The new annex will eliminate the 20-mile trip some had to take when they showed up without a birth certificate.

"This gives our customers an opportunity to not be turned away," says Moore, "to be able to go outside into a parking lot and get a document that's absolutely needed for the service we provide."

The new annex is just for printing birth certificates and does not provide the other services offered at the Department of Public Health.
