Computers at state office of revenue crash again
The Colorado Department of Revenue’s computer system for issuing vehicle license plates and titles is down, again.
The aging system went down last month because of a faulty server, but department workers replaced it with a used one to get back to business.
Department spokesman Mark Couch said Tuesday the system went down over the weekend, but the state’s Office of Information Technology was hoping to get it operational by today.
Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Sheila Reiner said that doesn’t mean people can’t come in. She said the office can continue to issue plates, and motorists and auto dealers can file for titles, but people will have to wait until the computers are back up to be able to print copies of them.
“The first server was not recoverable from the last time we were down for a week, and now we’re on the backup, which is down, too,” Reiner said of the state system.
“We can continue to hand-build the records, but we don’t have the state system to bounce off of for validation until those uploads are complete.”
