Five Monroe County elected officials have formed a committee to discuss mainstreaming county government efficiency in a response to county council’s push for the reorganization of government offices.

County Recorder Jim Fielder says elected officials needs to be on the forefront of any plan for re-organization because each office has different statutory requirements.

“We understand what they’re going after but I’m not sure they know exactly what our different offices are responsible for,” he says.

Fielder says the committee has met three times, and is hopeful they will be able to move employees around to streamline county government in a cost efficient way as they move forward.

The elected officials will be identifying a spokesperson who will represent them as plans for reorganization continue to be discussed.
