BELTON — The Bell County tax assessor-collector’s office may increase the number of grocery stores that are allowed to sell vehicle registration stickers.

Sharon Long, Bell County tax assessor-collector, said her office was approached by the manager of an H-E-B in Copperas Cove about selling registration stickers.

“He said that they already sell Coryell County’s registration stickers,” Long said. “But they get more requests for Bell County stickers.”

Bell County currently allows vehicle registration to be renewed at three grocery stores: H-E-B at 3002 S. 31st St. in Temple, H-E-B at 2509 N. Main St. in Belton and the H-E-B at 809 N. Gray St. in Killeen, Long said.

Diego Palmas, a spokesman for H-E-B, said the chain doesn’t have a specific policy or procedure that allows every store in a district the ability to sell registration stickers.

“That’s decided at the county level,” Palmas said.

He said the decision on what extra services a store offers to customers, such as handling utility payments or selling registration stickers, is dictated by the interior architecture of the store.

Long said the process of getting a contract with Bell County to sell registration stickers requires a $25,000 bond per location.
