State works toward restoring children's services position
September 9, 2021
The state is talking with the borough about restoring the Alaska Office of Children’s Services staff position in Wrangell, working through the details after the Legislature added funding for the job in this year’s budget.
Legislators appropriated enough money to cover half the salary, with the borough agreeing to cover the other half and provide free office space.
“The Office of Children’s Services is currently working with the Wrangell Borough to try to solidify details of the position,” Clinton Bennett, spokesman for the Department of Health and Social Services, said Friday.
