As the size and scope of Iowa government changes with new leadership in the House and on Terrace Hill, the Iowa Workforce Development office will also be seeing some changes. Under new plans, the IWD’s 55 field offices would be consolidated into 16 regional offices. As a result the local office in Washington would close. The services formerly provided by that office would be available through the library or the ISU extension office. The reorganization is planned to take effect July 1st.
