County Social Services Office Will Re-open April 29 in Mexico

MEXICO – The Oswego County Department of Social Services facility at 100 Spring St. will officially re-open to the public at 8:30 a.m. April 29.

The Mexico office building was closed in December for asbestos abatement and building repairs.

Since then, services have been provided at the former Cayuga Community College facility on state Route 3, Fulton.

Social Services Commissioner Gregg Heffner said the department will be closed April 26.

Employees will begin moving items from storage April 24, and the staff will move back into the Mexico building on April 26.

Commissioner Heffner said ceiling tiles have been replaced and several other repairs have been made to the Mexico facility.

“Our staff is looking forward to returning to the DSS facility in Mexico,” said Commissioner Heffner. “I want to thank the members of the public, the DSS staff, our co-workers at the Buildings and Grounds Department, and the County Legislature for their patience and cooperation over the past several months while repairs were made to the Mexico building. It was a challenging process at times, but everyone pulled together and the end result will be well worth the effort for our customers and our employees.”
