JEFFERSON CITY -- Sikeston's license office will stay under the same office agent.
On Friday, the Missouri Department of Revenue awarded the managements of the Sikeston/Miner office to Terry R. Cole. He has been the agent since February 2005, and also served as the office agent from 1981 to 1993. The license office will remain at 1515 E. Malone Ave.
