The Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services plans to close nine service centers across Kansas in a cost-cutting move–including the office in Marysville.
The agency said Friday that SRS beneficiaries will see no disruption in services as their cases are reassigned. No staff layoffs are anticipated since workers will be reassigned to neighboring offices.
The Legislature directed SRS to cut $42 million, including $1 million in administrative costs for fiscal year 2012.
SRS Secretary Rod Siedlecki said in a news release the agency identified a way to achieve those savings while still providing exemplary services.
