KS Ag Dept Move Presents Dilemma for Workers


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — More than 100 state employees are facing the dilemma of whether to move, commute more than 50 miles or retire when the Kansas Department of Agriculture moves from Topeka to Manhattan. Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman announced earlier this month the department was making the 56-mile move to be closer to Kansas State University, the future National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility and other ag-related entities. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the department will keep its administrative staff of about 10 employees in Topeka and will maintain a lab and field office at Forbes Field. The other 150 KDA workers will have to decide whether to commute, move or leave the department. The proposal calls for KDA leave its downtown Topeka offices no later than June 30, 2014.
