SECTION 40-6-3.7

   § 40-6-3.7  Local welfare offices. –

There shall be in each city or town a public welfare office or offices where

persons may make application for any type of public assistance, unless the

director of the department of human services designates such other suitable

offices within the state where persons may make such application. Suitable

quarters for the office shall be provided by cities and towns, and for the

expense of maintaining the offices; the cities and towns shall be reimbursed as

a general public assistance expense. In situations where, in the judgment of a

city or town, the amount of work does not justify the establishment of a local

office or where, for other reasons, a city or town does not desire a local

office, the state may, with the approval of the cities or towns concerned,

establish an office which may serve two (2) or more cities or towns.
