Cantonment Tax Office Closing Monday; Molino Office Opens July 2
June 7, 2012
The Escambia County Tax Collector’s Cantonment office will close next Monday, June 11, as it is moved permanently to a new location in Molino. A newly constructed 7,000 square foot building for the tax collector and property appraiser will open in Molino on Monday, July 2.
The Molino service center on Highway 95A will process motor vehicle and vessel registrations and titles, hunting and fishing licenses, property taxes, and business tax receipts. Limited driver license and ID card services will be available by appointment only. The new office will continue to offer drive thru service and a 24-hour drop box. Office hours will remain the same — Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
The Molino office is opening ahead of schedule, according to Tax Collector Janet Holley, as construction continues next door to covert the old Molino School into a 15,600 square foot library, community center and museum by November.
The county currently leases the Cantonment service center location in the old Winn Dixie Shopping Center for about $60,000 per year. That money, Holley said, will likely be saved and returned by her office to the county’s coffers at the end of the fiscal year.
The current employees at the Cantonment location will be transferred to the tax collector’s Marcus Pointe office during the move, and then moved to Molino on July 2.
“The new Molino office really looks great; we are pleased,” Holley said.
The new Molino tax collector and property appraiser office will also house a polling station for early voting and elections.
