Ness Outlines ITD Reorg Plan

You've probably heard some of this before, but Idaho Transportation Department Director Brian Ness recently outlined a realignment of the agency that aims to improve customer service, efficiency and accountability. It's also expected to save taxpayers at least $1.5 million over the next two years.

It's Ness' comments in this article from the Bonner County Daily Bee that interested me. For instance, “You show me anybody — any private sector company or public sector entity — that is bringing in the same revenues that they were 15 or 20 years ago that are surviving. You probably can’t find any.” Wow Mr. Ness. You mean business. And good for you.
