Jesse Marzen, County Attorney, informed the Board about a conflict of interest he has with a post conviction civil claim.  Marzen recommended the Board appoint Roger Sutton to this case.  

Marzen provided the Board with Judy O’Donohoe’s draft of the 28E law enforcement agreement between the City of Rockford and Floyd County.  The Board will act on this at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

The Board noted the receipt of a letter from Deb Gaul, Nora Springs City Clerk, regarding the Council’s recommendation of a 28E Law Enforcement agreement between the City of Nora Springs and Floyd County with a $25 per hour fee for the Sheriff Dept’s law enforcement services on an emergency call basis and allow the officer to use their best judgment when determining whether a call should be covered.  The Board will direct Marzen to draft a 28E at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

The Board discussed complaints regarding trashy looking properties outside of the Charles City city limits.  Supv Dunkel will provide the complainant’s with the county’s nuisance form for the Board of Health to address per the Nuisance ordinance.

Lisa Adelmund, Chamber Finance Project Coordinator, and the Auditor updated the Board on the IJOBS grant.  The Auditor provided a draft of the application for the courthouse projects, a draft letter of the Board’s commitment, and a resolution for the Board to review before tomorrow’s meeting where the Board will act on the grant application.  The IJOBS grant is due August 3.  Work continues on two SEP grant applications which are due August 12 and a historical grant which will be due in September.

The Auditor and the Board discussed a Township Trustee’s claim from the County’s general fund/payroll.  The trustee claims three meeting dates were times he attended fire meetings.  Supv Enabnit commented that attendance for fire meetings use to be paid out of the township’s fund, not the county’s general fund.  The Auditor will check with other counties to see how they handle towship claims.

The Auditor provided two bids for the receiver replacement tank that is leaking and has had seals replaced several times.  Last Friday the auditor made a call to KPE Consulting regarding if the county goes with a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) heating/cooling system if this tank will be used.  KPE responded that depending on the VRF that we end up with, the boiler may not be utilized.  The Auditor informed the Board that we can hold off on this repair for another year.  The Board will act on the bids at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

The Board noted the receipt in an e-mail from the Iowa Dept of Management regarding the projected statewide property tax levy rate for the FY09/10 Brucellosis and Tuberculosis Eradication Fund (Dept of Agriculture certified levy) will be $346,545.  This is based on applying the .00300 per thousand times the non-TIF taxable valuation without gas and electric valuation.  The FY08/09 statewide amount was $384,818.

The Board noted that Jessica Sargeant has been transferred from a part-time jailer to a full-time jailer filling the position vacated after the termination of Sarah Ashley.
