“They’re not having to go out in public, it works for us, so we’re actually becoming more paperless and it’s more efficient,” Horton said.
Most of their work they can do online and on their first day back open. He says the community has been understanding with the new way of doing things.
“They see we’re trying to help them and trying to look out for their well being also so I was really pleased with the people that came in today,” Horton said.
