Pursuant to section 404(7) of the Social Services Law, the Office of Children and Family Services hereby provides public notice of the anticipated closure of the below facilities operated by such Office, significant associated services reductions and public employee staffing reductions to reflect the decrease in the number of juvenile delinquents placed with OCFS as result of the approval of New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services plan to operate a Juvenile Justice Services Close to Home Initiative for juvenile delinquents placed in non-secure settings:
• Lansing Residential Center
• Middletown Residential Center
Such actions are anticipated to take place by August 31, 2013, but preparatory actions necessary to effectuate such actions will be conducted before then.
For further information, contact: Jennifer Givner, Assistant Commissioner for External Affairs and Communications, 52 Washington Street, Rensselaer, NY 12144, (518) 402-3130.
