Human Services staff to stay at South Shore

El Dorado County Human Services staff will stay in South Lake Tahoe.

“The staff at South Lake Tahoe is very happy with this decision,” said Daniel Nielson, Human Service Department director.

All the employees who had offices on Silver Dollar Avenue will be moved to the El Dorado Center, Nielson said.

Originally the county was planning to move 16 of the department’s 52 South Shore staff members to Placerville, while others would move to county offices in the El Dorado Center.

The department’s goal was to keep all South Lake Tahoe employees in the area, and Nielson said he’s pleased a solution was found.

The Lake Tahoe Unified School District had offered the county free use of the portables at the Al Tahoe Learning Center. The portables would have been too expensive because of the utilities and set-up involved, but then space opened up at the El Dorado Center, Nielson said.

The space became available because the Department of Child Support Services will move into its old location at 924 Emerald Bay Road.
