press play to hear from DHS Spokesman Roger Munns
The Iowa Department of Human Services office in Washington County is one of 23 across the state switching from full to part time hours. DHS Spokesman Roger Munns says it’s an effort to better utilize their reduced staff. About one-third of DHS offices already function on a by-appointment only basis. Munns expects the change to be similar in Washington, and other counties going to the new part time status.
