GRAND HAVEN, Mich.—Job hunters in Grand Haven will soon have to head to Central High School for help.

The Ottawa County Michigan Works Service Center is moving from its current site at the D&W Shopping Plaza into a new office at the high school, located at 106 S. 6th Street.  Customers can enter from Clinton Avenue.

Michigan Works is relocating because the improving economy means less demand for its services.  The move is also part of a new partnership with the school district, streamlining operational costs while providing an opportunity to better collaborate with education agencies.   The satellite office is also much closer to downtown Grand Haven.

The current office will remain open through Wednesday, May 28 before employees begin moving. During the closure,  customers who need to complete the unemployment claim register for work office can visit any other area Michigan Works offices or St. Patrick’s Church in Grand Haven on June 4 or June 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The new office will open to the public Wednesday, June 11.  The new business hours will be Wednesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
