Rick Johnson, Rowan County
♦ Ladies and Gentleman of the Salisbury City Council,
I understand you are considering the county commissioner’s application for a special use permit to place government offices into the Salisbury Mall (West End Plaza).
While pondering this decision please take our county’s 13,000+ veterans and their families into consideration.
The Veteran Service Office (VSO) works out of a cramped office space which is drastically undersized. We have two Veterans Service Officers working in less than 300 square feet. This does not count the space which is taken by two desk, 9 file cabinets and our copy/fax machine. With this arrangement we are unable to serve two veterans at the same time due to privacy concerns and HIPAA regulations. If two veterans have appointments at the same time, I have to disconnect my lap top and search the building for a private space to business.
