Personnel changes have provided an opportunity for Garrett County Commissioners to restructure some county agencies and save money while doing so. From the county press release:
The Board of County Commissioners has taken official action to establish the Garrett County Department of Public Works. This new County department will consolidate the Department of Public Utilities and Roads Department.
When complete, the restructuring plan will save the county $170,000.
