TAVARES — The Lake County Department of Community Services, located at 1300 S. Duncan Drive, Building E, in Tavares, readjusted its operating hours to Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The divisions of the Department of Community Services include Transportation & Housing and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Programs of the Department include Veterans Services, Children’s & Elder Services and Community Health Worker.
On Sept. 1, 2008, the Department of Community Services switched its operating hours to Monday-Thursday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Increasing the hours of operation on Monday-Thursday was an effort to serve customers who may not be able to visit the office during normal working hours. After reviewing customer comments, it was determined that remaining open on Fridays would allow for better customer service.
