A directional sign points out the different offices in the Kandiyohi County Office Building at 400 Benson Ave. S.W. in downtown Willmar. The county's tax and land use departments are housed there together at what a consultant describes as the "county's retail business." The consultant studying the county's operations and organization says members of the public simply want to do their business and are not concerned about who is managing which department.

Kandiyohi County, Minn., opens the door to restructured local government


WILLMAR -- David Unmacht has spent a couple days in Kandiyohi County so far, reviewing documents, collecting data, interviewing employees and getting a general feel for how work flows from one department to another and how services are delivered to the public.

During the next month he will also spend time talking to members of the public who "do business" with the county to get their input as customers of county services.
