Iowa Legislature has a great deal of control over efforts to stream line county governments in the state Clayton Ringgenberg director of the bureau said the Legisla ture also has much responsibili ty for any changes in county government framework The bureau probed the nature of the counties as part of a study requested by Reps Paul Walter Bernard Balch R Riley Dietz RWal Bert Fairchiid RIda Robert Naden RWeb ster Ncal Pierce RRus sell and Clark McNeal RBel Although counties are created by the slate and serve as agen cies of the state they jtiso are political entities in their own right the report said THE BOARD of supervisors is generally held to be responsible for most county affairs and it has some supervisory powers over most county offices primarily in financial and personnel matters the report said But it added Authority and responsibility are spread among so many offi cials that there is little overall control and coordination in ad ministering the various county programs Many county functions are per formed by officials elected direct ly by the people the researchers commented and observed It is doubtful that the super visors can effectively supervise persons not appointed by them In a sense the supervision ol these elective officers is left to the voters One of the major criticisms made of county government is hat it is headless It is argued hat it is difficult to get efficient economical and responsible gov ernment because of this split of control THE REPORT said Iowa coun ties are organized like those in most other states but that in re cent years some groups have been asking for a better admin istrative setup to permit better coordination of county work and more efficient use of money em ployes and equipment The bureau said the report was designed to lay the groundwork for two other studies to be re leased in the fall which will dis cuss these questions Should Iowa counties be per mitted to consolidate present of fices and functions Should two or more counties be allowed to provide a service or function together rather than in dividually END OF GAR One of the acts in the tion shown here It was a flip and a half Aut
