The Morris County Office of Temporary Assistance will close its satellite office on Morris Street in Dover effective Nov. 4.

Services offered at the Dover location are being consolidated under one roof at the OTA office at 340 West Hanover Ave., in Morris Township.

Those services include OTA’s Extended Hours Program for those clients who are unable to apply for benefits during normal business hours, said Gary Denamen, OTA director. The Extended Hours program is conducted every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Denamen said NJ Transit has added additional bus service on its Bus Route 873 to the OTA office in Morris Township, and that a schedule is available from the NJ Transit website, www.njtransit.com.

Anyone with questions or who needs additional information about OTA or directions to the OTA office may call 973-326-7800.
