The Johnson County Board of Services will soon have a new home. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross talk to manager Lyndel Harrison:
“Our case managers and administrative officers are in rented facilities now,” said Harrison,” Our day habitation program is in a space at our sheltered workshop location. Part of the reason we wanted to move that program is because the size of the area where they’re currently at restricts the number of people they can serve.”
The $1.219 million dollar facility will be constructed on Devasher Road on land donated by the city. Harrison said they hope to break ground within the next two weeks and the building should be completed in late April.
