The Twin Falls Times-News reports today that Hal Anderson, head of the planning and technical services division for the Idaho Department of Water Resources, plans to retire next month after nearly three decades with the agency, and that Anderson, 60, is hoping the agency will hire back some of the employees it’s laid off in the past year rather than replace him. “They’re the ones that are keeping our actual programs going,” Anderson told the Times-News, though he’s a top manager with decades of experience in Idaho water issues. “I personally support … keeping as much at the programmatic level as we can.” You can read the full story here by Times-News reporter Nate Poppino.
