The State Department of Economic Development is making changes to the way it delivers services to those in need of economic assistance. It’s creating a half dozen regional development teams to look after needs in individual regions of the state. Economic Development Director Joe Driskill says creation of these teams will help officials in the various regions to have their concerns addressed more quickly than in the past. Driskill says this is an effort to bring services down to the grassroots level, where an identifiable staff can get to know the people in the various regions and help them in their requests for services.
