Belfair WorkSource office reopens today

BELFAIR — After many months of being closed, a public employment office in Belfair was scheduled to reopen today, Monday, in a new location.

The WorkSource of Mason County office now is in larger quarters at the North Mason County Resource Center, located at 23554 NE Highway 3 in the Lincoln Center behind Peninsula Credit Union.

The office offers job leads, training and counseling for persons seeking employment, and is open from 8:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Mondays only. Those who need help on other days can visit or go to the WorkSource offices in Bremerton or Shelton.

WorkSource in Belfair operated briefly in space next to the North Mason Chamber of Commerce. The unemployment office closed in late July when the chamber moved and no longer had the room.

While the new office is tiny, it serves North Mason residents who are unemployed who otherwise would have to travel long distances to Shelton or Bremerton. The unemployment rate in Mason County in August was 10.5 percent.

To reach the new WorkSource office, call (360) 801-5651.
