Bill Faust, Floyd County Memorial Hospital Administrator, discussed with the Board how services provided by the hospital have changed over the years and they now provide more outpatient services than hospital services.They would like to promote more of those outpatient services and are considering changing the name of the hospital to include that they are a health center or medical center, not just a hospital.
Pat Zwanziger, PH/HHC Director, provided a quote for a new computer, monitor and software in the department.This will be acted on at the next regular meeting.
Jesse Marzen, CountyAttorney, and the Board discussed insurance coverage on a lawsuit claim.Last week, EMC provided notice stating they have retained legal council due to the short notice to respond to the lawsuit allegations but they have not had time to make their decision on coverage.Marzen reported that the response would be filed on time.Supv Dunkel suggested having Mike Galloway review the labor issues on the claim.A decision to do this could be done at any time before trial.
The Board discussed snow removal in the north parking lot and where to park county-owned vehicles.In the summer the west side of the lot is used for motorcycle skills testing.At the Department Head meeting last week it was suggested to use the row next to Main Street filling the spaces from north to south.This provides consistency for Veterans and others who use the vehicles to know to always park in the same area whether it is summer or winter.A suggestion was made to put signs up, like the “permit only” signs for the judges, for the five county vehicles that are parked in the north parking lot.Supv Dunkel commented about moving the motorcycle skills testing to another location and the county-owned vehicles then always park in the row along the west side of the north parking lot.
Mary Litterer, Foster Grandparents Director, requested that the Board consider lowering the price of the Andres Park prints.The prints were originally sold for $50 with price reduced to $25 in February 2006.Litterer reports that they have only sold one print since 2005 and thinks if the price was reduced again that they may make nice Christmas gifts.The Board will act on this at tomorrow’s regular meeting.
The Board noted receipt of the North Iowa Juvenile Detention Services Commission Auditor’s Reports of Financial Statement and Required Supplementary Information for FY08.
The Board noted $2,007.24 in fees collected from the Clerk of Court for the month of November.
Future agenda items:Enterprise Zone-EZ-4, direct report employee evaluations, energy-conscious efforts at RockfordFossilCenter, law enforcement for small towns.
A motion was made by Supervisor Enabnit and seconded by Supervisor Dunkel to adjourn.Motion carried 3-0.
