Starting July 19th thru September 30th branch offices on Monday and Thursday will be open from 9 a.m. thru 6p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday offices will open at 8 a.m. and close at 5 p.m.
Benson said it will provide 120,000 thousand additional in-person services.

She hopes to launch mobile offices that will travel to large gatherings of residents including senior centers.
She said since July 1st most residents have been required to renew their State id’s or driver’s licenses every 12 years rather than rather than 8 years. This can be done online, by mail, at a self-service kiosk or in-person.
