Floyd County Board of Supervisors Meeting

August 20, 2007, 9:00 AM


The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for a workshop meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 20, 2007 in the Board Room of the Floyd County Courthouse with the following in attendance:  Chairman Dunkel, Supv. Enabnit and Supv. Staudt.

Enabnit/Staudt moved to approve the agenda as presented.  Motion carried 3-0.

Jesse Marzen, County Attorney, and Dave Kuehner, Asst. County Attorney, discussed the nuisance ordinance with the Board.  Marzen expressed concerns with the Board’s motion at last Tuesday’s meeting to amend the ordinance requiring two signed complaints from two different individuals before Jeff Sherman, Sanitarian, could proceed with the process identified in the ordinance.  This will be discussed more at the second reading of the ordinance on August 28.

Supv Dunkel questioned Marzen’s claim for $11,000 to Rolf Aronson for County cases where Marzen has a conflict of interest.  Marzen explained that the arrangement he made with Aronson was to hold off paying him for his services in FY07 to FY08 so he could budget the expense.  Marzen doesn’t think he will have problems staying within the $15,000 budgeted in this fiscal year. 

Marzen requested the Board table discussion regarding personnel issues in his department.

Dave Tice, AMR, provided a notice from Patrice Famber, AMR Facility Contract Lead stating that she spoke with Jeff Jacobson, State representative, stating that the state does not pay for body transports and that bills need to be filed with the County.  Supv Dunkel would like the Auditor to send copies of the two bills for $914.80 each to Senator Amanda Regan with a message that “this is out of control.”

The Board reviewed and noted the Auditor’s approval of the Inter-Tel agreement for the telephone system at the DHS facility. 

The Board noted the receipt of a letter from Pat Zwanziger, PH/HHC Administrator, regarding Home Health Care Aide Kathleen King will complete the required hours of employment to advance to the next pay rate from $9.68/hour to $10.18/hour with the pay period ending August 24, 2007.  

The Board noted the receipt of a letter from Zwanziger stating that Staci Dahl, RN, will change her status from full-time to part-time effective September 1, 2007.

The Board noted a Military Exemption and Homestead Credit for parcel that was missed and a corrected tax statement that was mailed to the home owner. 

The Board reviewed the District Court documents regarding the Mediacom Communications Corporation versus the Board of Review regarding a stipulation for voluntary settlement.  Supv Dunkel would like the Board to take action on this at the August 28 Board meeting.

Future agenda items:  1) Floyd County Housing Trust Fund Board of Directors meeting coming up; 2) County Behavioral Health Oversight Board meeting scheduled tentatively for September 27 regarding mental health changes.

A motion was made by Supervisor Staudt and seconded by Supervisor Enabnit to adjourn.  Motion carried 3-0.
