New Social Services offices have a few quirks

Email News Alerts

Hubbard County Social Services receptionists are bundling up for work these days.

A glitch in the new office's heating and cooling system has resulted in front office personnel dressing in layers, and caseworkers in back offices asking for permission to wear Bermuda shorts to work.


Multiple space heaters at the reception desk have been curtailed to a single heater because the network of space heaters had a propensity to trip the circuit breakers every few minutes.
