Good news for some

Word on the street is that Ken Ulman has withdrawn the legislation that would have moved the work currently done by the Howard Soil Conservation District to DPZ. Although this would have saved taxpayers $200,000 and allowed DPZ to offer faster customer service, many in the community were critical of putting this work in DPZ's shop. Many argued that keeping this work under the umbrella of a separate entity was a good check and balance. It will be interesting to see if any positions are cut from DPZ, now that it has been advertised that DPZ is not at full capacity. I am betting not.
