A proposed restructuring of Iowa’s largest state agency shouldn’t have too much impact locally. Department of Human Services Spokesman Roger Munns says changes will be made mostly at the regional level. He says they’re trying to preserve as many frontline employees as possible. DHS isn’t the only state funded organization undergoing a reorganization as a result of funding reductions. Earlier this year the ISU Extension service experienced a similar change. Similar modifications are also coming down the pike for Empowerment Boards.
