Sioux City And County Consider Merging Services

April 1, 2014, 5:17 AM

SIOUX CITY, IA -

Officials for Sioux City and Woodbury County are trying to figure out if they should consolidate some services due to an unusual arrangement in place for decades.

The city and county have separate public employees performing similar tasks for things like calculating property values. Each department, located in the county courthouse, has its own budget and computer systems.

James Van Bruggen, executive director of watchdog group Taxpayers Research Council, says sharing some services could increase collaboration and save taxpayer money.

Some county officials are not convinced of the value. They say consolidation would just shift work to other employees.

The City Council will discuss whether to reappoint the city assessor in May. For now, there's no plan to conduct a major consolidation study.
