    The city of Des Moines is shifting responsibilities among its assistant city managers as a result of the rapid pace of development projects and a desire to allow City Manager Scott Sanders to delegate some authority.

    Assistant City Manager Matt Anderson, who has headed the city's economic development department, now will act as a liaison between the economic development, community development, engineering and housing departments.

    With the exception of the housing department, which operates primarily under federal guidance, Anderson will oversee departments directly connected to most aspects of the city's growth, from development agreements and financial packages to street improvements and zoning issues.
