Olmsted County announced today they're placing 11 kiosks in 11 agencies in Rochester and around our community to give county citizens greater access to services they offer.

For example, there will be a kiosk at Channel One. So, instead of having to make a trip two locations, people will be able to make it one and done for "services from Olmsted County’s Health, Housing, and Human Services (HHH) teams as well as information on Legal Assistance of Olmsted County, RentHelpMN, and State of Minnesota benefits."

Taking a look at the screen shot up there, you can see a ton of services are available for you on the kiosks, everything from child and youth services to mental health services. Scroll down for the complete list from the county.

The kiosks will have a speaker so you can hear directions and such, but, also a handset if you want to keep things private. Tap here to see all the features.

Rochester Has Too Many ____?

That was the question we asked and holy moly did we get answers. Mostly banks and coffee shops, it seems.

FILL IN THE BLANK: Rochester has way too many ________.

If someone asked you, "What does Rochester have too many of?", what would you say? I asked that question to people living in the Med City and got quite the list of answers. Some might make you laugh (cause they are true) and others may have you scratching your head a bit because this is the first time you've realized we have a few issues happening in our gorgeous city. Scroll through the list that were sent to me and see how many you agree with.
