Getting out of the silos: Kandiyohi County to implement new organizational structure


Most people in rural communities are familiar with silos that are used to store things likes shelled corn and corn silage.

Thick silo walls keep the different contents in their place.

Typical county governments operate with their own type of silos — one for public health, one for family services, one for the auditing department, one for the recorder’s office, another for the assessor’s office and one for planning and zoning, etc.
