Floyd County Board of Supervisors Meeting
July 20, 2009, 9:00 AM
The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for a workshop meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, July 20, 2009, in the Board Room of the Floyd County Courthouse with the following in attendance: Chairman Staudt, Supv Dunkel and Supv Enabnit.
Enabnit/Dunkel moved to approve the agenda as presented. Motion carried 3-0.
Robert Tumilson, Mayor of Rockford, Diane Marker, council person, Judith O’Donohoe, Rockford City Attorney, Sheriff Rick Lynch, Jesse Marzen, County Attorney, and the Board discussed law enforcement services for the City of Rockford. Mayor Tumilson provided a handout of notes he made regarding the Sheriff’s presence at city council meetings and the cost of services to Rockford compared to other cities. Discussion included renewing a 28E agreement and lowering the fee for services to $3 per capita since Rockford may need to compensate Randy Schweizer who will continue working as the public works director and take on the additional city responsibilities as a peace officer. O’Donohoe will review the previous 28E Agreement and propose any changes to Marzen. The Board intends to act on this at the July 28th meeting.
Deb Gaul, Nora Springs City Clerk, George Anderson, Mayor, Larry Cross, council person, Jesse Dugan, Nora Springs Police Chief, Sheriff Rick Lynch and the Board discussed law enforcement services for the City of Nora Springs. Nora Springs would like to procure coverage of services when Nora Spring’s law enforcement is off duty. Sheriff Lynch suggested a fee per call for service. The Sheriff will visit with the County Attorney about writing a 28E agreement.
The Auditor and Lisa Adelmund, Chamber/Revitalization Financial Project Coordinator, updated the Board on grants for the courthouse building improvement projects. KPE Consulting is working on an amendment to last year’s Technical Engineering Analysis to include another energy management improvement of a variable flow refrigerant system.
The Auditor informed the Board that she and the Assessor drove the 2004 Impala that the Sheriff’s Dept will no longer be using. This is a better vehicle than the current county vehicle. The Auditor will place an advertisement in the Charles City Press to dispose of the old vehicle with sealed bids due August 7th. The Board will open sealed bids at the August 11 meeting.
The Board noted the resignation of Ronda Boekemeier, PH/HHC Dept Home Care Aide, effective July 28, 2009.
A motion was made by Supervisor Enabnit and seconded by Supervisor Dunkel to adjourn. Motion carried 3-0.
