TEMPERANCE — Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land announced Friday that the Temperance branch office will remain open.
The closure of the office, at 7200 Lewis Ave., was announced in November as part of a plan to modernize and consolidate branch offices. The office had been set to close later this month.
Spokesman Kelly Chesney said the decision was rescinded, in part, because an agreement to renew the lease for an office branch in Oakland County fell through, freeing up resources to retain the Temperance location.
