(More positions for Social Services)….The request was made at this week’s Board of Supervisors meeting.
Peggy Price, Director of the Imperial County Social Services Department, went before the Board to ask for an additional six Social Workers and 4 Social Services Assistants. Price said the increases would allow her department to comply with new legislation. She said the legislation allows her department to work with families receiving temporary assistance, families who have had their children removed, and others. Price said the legislation allows her department to combine resources to pay for the new positions. She said the new social workers would work with parents to get them through the process. The Supervisors agreed to the request on a unanimous voted.
