  1. Teens applying for a position as a summer recreation employee are being forced to get a Non-driver identification card from the MVC for a $24 fee. Cosmo Cirillo is the commissioner in charge of the Rec and his good friend David Morel is a supervisor at the MVC, can this just be a coincidence? Passports aren’t a valid form of ID in WNY for teenagers?
