Two more Benton County agencies are making the move to the Sunset Building, 4077 S.W. Research Way.

The local office of the Oregon State University Extension Service and the Benton County Juvenile Department were expected to finish moving in Tuesday.

Dial-A-Bus, a nonprofit organization that provides senior and disabled transportation services under contract with the county, is scheduled to move in later this summer. The human resources department and the combined taxation, finance, assessment and budget department relocated earlier.

The Sunset Building previously housed the headquarters staff of the Siuslaw National Forest, which has moved into federally owned offices on the OSU campus.

The county purchased the building in 2010 for $3.3 million with the goal of moving county workers out of rented space and consolidating scattered departments in a single location.

All county departments housed in the Avery Complex, the Law Enforcement Center and the Benton County Courthouse will remain in their current locations.

The Board of Commissioners office has moved out of the Benton Plaza to a county-owned building at 205 N.W. Fifth St.
