  The state Department of Health and Human Services is relocating its Manchester office to temporary offices.

Officials say they were unable to agree on a new lease with the owner of the Manchester office space.

Associate Commissioner Mary Ann Cooney says about 30 employees will work out of a building at the Sununu Youth Services Center in Manchester.

The rest will make short-term moves to other cities.

“Some will be at the southern district office in the Nashua area,” Cooney said. “Others will be in the Concord area.”

Cooney says many of the department’s services are also available online or by phone.

She says it could take up to six months before there’s a new permanent district office in Manchester.
