LINN COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Linn County Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to close a program which serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Supervisors voted Monday to close the Options pre-vocational program by June 30, 2016, and restructure the day program to meet new federal requirements.

A task force had been reviewing the program for a year because federal regulations have changed and there are funding restrictions.
