THE CITY OF MADISON is combining three of its departments into one.
Economic development, community development, and building and permits will now be three divisions of one department called Economic and Community Development Services.
“The real reason, I think, is to try to work more efficiently,” said Jerry Cook, director of economic development, who will keep his current position and serve as director of the overall department.
