Thurston County Treasurers Office Soon to Reopen for Lunch Hour.
OLYMPIA - Beginning September 1st the Thurston County Treasurer's Office will reopen for the lunch hour. The office has been closed 12:00-1:00 pm since January of 2009 because of work force cutbacks.-30-
Thurston County Treasurer Shawn Myers announced the resumption of lunch hour service after discussing the issue with office staff. "It is important to be accessible to the public during the noon hour because for some folks, that's the only week-day time available for them to conduct their business."
Myers says she is able to change office staff schedules to resume operations over the lunch hour. The reason to wait to restart the practice until September 1st is to accommodate staff scheduling conflicts that are already in place around the previous office hours.
Again, starting September 1st of this year, the Thurston County Treasurer's Office will be open over the lunch hour. This change will make the new service hours for the Treasurer's Office 9:00-4:30.
