The Board reviewed the City of Charles City’s revised Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase property known as the County Shed located at 1200 Second Street, Charles City.  Changes to the agreement received in August include date changes and revisions to the property description which now excludes the section of bike path in the NE¼ SW¼ NW¼ east of the railroad in Sec 12, Twp 95N, Rge 16W and includes the W70’ of Lot 4 and W 70’ of the S 25’ of Lot 3, Block 13 in Gilbert’s Addition.  Enabnit/Staudt moved to approve Resolution #32-06 for the purpose of entering into a Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase the 2nd St property with the City of Charles City and set a hearing for disposition of the property on December 26, 2006 at 10 a.m.  Motion carried 2-0.

Bruce Hovden, Assessor, has been getting requests for GIS “shape” files, aerials, highway road easements, etc. from private companies so they can service other clients.  The County has charges from $25/day to $400/year for GIS online info.  Hovden would like the Board to develop some guidelines on how Floyd County will address file requests and reported that counties across the state are all over with charging no fees to an annual fee of $300 to charging by the parcel.  Hovden believes the file should be valued at more than the $400/year online fee.  The Board will act on this at the next regular meeting.

Ben Johnson and Scott Dight presented financials on behalf of the Floyd County Fair Society and talked about past and current improvements to programs and the grounds.  The Fair Board requested the Supervisors to consider a cost of living increase in the County’s contribution to the Fair Society.
