The Cherokee Nation tag office in its new location on Ballentine Road in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA — The Cherokee Nation is hosting an open house Monday at its newly relocated tag office in Tahlequah. Principal Chief Bill John Baker, Deputy Chief S. Joe Crittenden and Tribal Councilors from Cherokee County will be available for a meet and greet.
The 6,000-square-foot office will better serve Cherokee Nation citizens purchasing license plates. The space has five service windows, a larger lobby and more parking.
The Cherokee Nation expanded its car tag program statewide for the first time ever last year.
Since expanding the availability of car tags beyond the Cherokee Nation’s 14-county jurisdiction, more than 10,000 additional license plates have sold, generating more revenue for public schools, roads and bridges, and law enforcement.
In fiscal year 2014, the Cherokee Nation generated $11 million in motor vehicle tag revenue, up about $2 million from fiscal year 2013.
The Cherokee Nation operates six tag offices, including a new office in Tulsa and expanded offices in Sallisaw and Tahlequah.
