DES MOINES – Progressive levels of reduced funding for workforce services has forced Iowa Workforce Development to close 15 offices throughout the state. Effective June 30, 2006, services will no longer be provided in Grinnell or Independence.

“The decision to close offices was a difficult one,” indicated Workforce Development Manager Aaron Saurerbrei, “many of our customers will find it necessary to travel to surrounding counties for workforce services.”

Iowa Workforce Development is committed to providing quality, customer-friendly services throughout the state in the remaining 54 offices. Additionally, the most common services such as searching and posting jobs; download required employer postings; file unemployment insurance claims; access regional information and more are available 24/7 online at www.iowaworkforce.org.
