As part of a reorganization of social services in North Dakota, the Department of Human Services is proposing grouping county social services into “zones.”
"Over the last few years, there have been a number of counties that have formed multi-county social service districts," said Department of Human Services director Chris Jones. "We're looking at that concept to group some other counties together."
Jones said not only are there administrative efficiencies, it could better serve North Dakotans.
"We will be able to move dollars across borders," Jones said.
