State Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Crawford/Erie/Lawrence/Mercer) is working together with the Jamestown Borough Police Department to help district residents replace their hard-to-read license plates for free.

The event will be held Monday, July 18, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jamestown Volunteer Fire Department. An officer from the Jamestown Borough Police Department will be checking the plates and determining whether they need to be replaced.

Drivers must bring along their unexpired Pennsylvania driver’s license and current vehicle registration card.

The is only for those with standard or eligible vanity plates. Specialty plates including those for veterans, PA zoos, college alumni, etc. cannot be processed at this event. Drivers who have specialty plates with damage need to work directly with PennDOT on a replacement.

A registration plate is considered illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet or if the registration plate shows any blistering, peeling, discoloration or loss of reflectivity.

Drivers must register in advance to attend by calling Wentling's Conneaut Lake district office at 814-382-7200.
