Oswego Social Services offices relocate to Fulton during asbestos abatement

Oswego County Department of Social Services in Mexico, NY

The Oswego County Department of Social Services is in the process of moving into a temporary location in Fulton. The Mexico office is temporarily closing while the building undergoes asbestos abatement.

The DSS office is moving to the former Cayuga Community College facility on state Route 3 in Fulton. The abatement is expected to be completed in May, 2013.

DSS offices will be closed Monday, December 17 and reopen in Fulton on Tuesday, December 18.

Office hours and phone numbers for the DSS will not change, says Gregg Heffner, Commissioner of Social Services. Public transportation bus routes will not be affected and people can pick up the Oswego County public transportation service at the Mexico DSS office.

Oswego County Administrator Philip Church announced in March that testing revealed asbestos levels above the federal limit were present in ceiling tiles in the older part of the Mexico building.

The project is expected to be completed in early May, 2013, and was previously estimated to cost up to $800,000 or more.
