Hays County Commissioners and San Marcos officials approved a lease agreement in August that will bring the Women, Infants & Children program to the county’s two health clinics at 401 Broadway St. in San Marcos and at 150 Lockhart St. in Kyle.
The WIC program will be located at the Broadway Street building, the former site of the county’s elections office. San Marcos administers the WIC program in Hays and several surrounding counties with federal grant funds.
The three-year lease agreement sets a monthly rate of $3,453 for the two locations.
“Through this collaboration we are able to bring together much-needed services more conveniently for our clients, and we’re pleased to work together with the county to make that happen,” said DerryAnn Gonzales, San Marcos assistant director of community services-WIC Program, in a statement.
The WIC clinics are expected to open at the new locations by the beginning of October. Clients are asked to call the WIC office at 393-8040 before their next appointment to verify the location most applicable to them.
