Cost of 700 missing license plates to hit Davidson Co. taxpayers

Posted: Updated: March 25, 2013 05:24 PM

Davidson County taxpayers will pick up the bill for 700 license plates that are unaccounted for at the Davidson County Clerk's Office.

The clerk, Brenda Wynn, told Nashville's News 2 the shipment sent last June was incomplete.

Nobody from the Davidson County Clerk's Office physically inspected the shipment, and subsequently signed off saying it had arrived intact.

It was later discovered that as many as 700 license plates were unaccounted for.

The Tennessee Department of Revenue sent a bill for those missing plates in the amount of $1, 715.

The situation has changed how they conduct business at the clerk's office. Now every shipment is physically inspected.

Recently, 5,000 license plates came into the clerk's office, and employees discovered one box containing 100 license plates that was supposed to be delivered to Marion County.

This time, the clerk's inventory employee caught the mistake and called the company, Tricor, which is based out of Nashville.

A public relations person with Tricor said mistakes are very rare, and that as soon as the Marion County box was located in Nashville, it was redirected back to Marion County.

Tricor officials would not comment on the missing 700 license plates, but said the situation is still under investigation.

Officials said that they were either stolen or lost.
