SUPERIOR, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Office of Public Assistance will close its office in Superior in Mineral County on June 30.

Field manager Chris Mitchell tells the Missoulian (https://bit.ly/1ITyZ9N ) that people no longer need to a face-to-face interview to take advantage of programs because of online access.

Mineral County has a population of roughly 4,200.

Mitchell says staffing is one reason the office is closing. The branch went from three employees to just one in the past couple of months.

She could not immediately comment on the number of clients who seek assistance in person at the Superior office.
