Carroll County Farm Service Agency Officially Closing Oct. 1

 
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Aug. 9, 2012 -- Steve Maurer, State Executive Director for the Ohio Farm Service Agency (FSA) today announced that as of Oct. 1, 2012, the Carroll County FSA offices will be officially closed. A separate announcement will be made public for the other FSA offices that were approved for closure, once a date is determined. From this date forward, all FSA program services will be provided by the Tuscarawas county FSA office unless a producer has elected to transfer his/her records to another county.

 
The Tuscarawas County FSA office is located at:
277 Canal Ave., SE Suite A
New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663
Phone number is 330-339-5585

 
On May 29, 2012, the Ohio Farm Service Agency (FSA) received approval from Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to proceed with the implementation of county office consolidation plan, including the five county offices in Ohio.

 
“Over the past three years, FSA has faced a variety of budget-related challenges,” said Juan Garcia, Administrator of the Farm Service Agency. “Through a targeted office consolidation effort that includes 125 offices nationwide, FSA is striving to balance significant budget cuts, staff reductions and increasing workloads while focusing the efforts of our staff on high-quality service. There are 2,119 offices remaining in the FSA network to do just that.”

 
“Although we recognize that change is never easy, we strongly believe that taking this action now is critical to ensuring FSA can continue to serve its customers as it adjusts to budget constraints,” said Garcia. “FSA can only achieve the high level of service expected through consolidation of our human, financial and technical resources.”
