Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski announced the Veterans Service Agency would begin in-person office hours at the Trott Access Center in Niagara Falls beginning next week. The office has been closed during the pandemic and all appointments since then have been conducted in the Lockport office.
“Our team in the Veterans Service Agency is excited to get back to Trott and provide our menu of services to Niagara County’s veterans,” Jastrzemski said. “We do all we can to help meet the needs of veterans and ensure they get all the benefits to which they are entitled. Now, not everyone will have to travel to Lockport to be helped.”
Veterans Service Agency Director Jeff Glatz said the Trott office will be open the first and third Wednesdays of every month beginning May 5. Veterans can call 716-438-4090 to make an appointment, but walk-ins are also welcome.
“We will be meeting with the town clerks later this month, as well, and hope to be able to work out a monthly remote meeting schedule in different towns and village across the county where vets can meet us right at the town hall where they live,” Glatz said. “We want to be as accessible as possible while still ensuring veterans and our staff are safe.”
