SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson announced Tuesday it will reorganize the county government in order to provide “a better framework for addressing current and future challenges”

The reorganization also includes streamlining criminal justice services into the same service line as homeless and human services. Human resources will also now be under the Chief Financial Officer. 

“This new organization will enable Salt Lake County to serve its residents with greater focus and efficiency and address quality of life concerns,” said Mayor Wilson, in a statement. 

Mayor Jenny Wilson will introduce her senior leadership team to the County Council and hold her “State of the County” address on March 26.
