The decision to close the U. S. Interior Department’s mapping offices in Rolla, Missouri and consolidate them in Denver, Colorado has been going on for a while. The decision is a controversial one and has even sparked staff at Rolla to start a blog to allow others to know of what is really going on. The plan to close the office was first announced in September, 2005; complaints were lodged that the move“was not justified because it ignored internal data showing that Rolla had cheaper wages and operating costs.” However, “an internal review found the decision-making process to be fair.” The move will affect about 200 jobs. No response yet from the Topo Employees’ blog yet.
