Floyd County Board of Supervisors Meeting
August 24, 2009, 9:00 AM
The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for a workshop meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 24, 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.
The Board will review claims individually after the meeting.
The Board noted the Tentative Equalization Notice showing no adjustments for agriculture farm land and commercial realty and a 7% increase in residential realty. Bruce Hovden, Assessor, filed an appeal with the Dept of Revenue with respect to the residential increase and spoke with Dale Hyman, Property Tax Administrator, who said the market does appear to be soft in the area. We will find out in September if the appeal was successful.
Jeff Sherman, Zoning/E911 Addressing/Sanitarian, spoke with the Board about cabins that have holding tanks rather than septic systems and the fees to do inspections. Sherman proposed a reduced fee since there is less work required for this type of inspection. The Board of Health has not had a meeting to discuss this but Sherman would like to have something in place before the next BOH meeting.
Tony Reed and Justin Cornish, Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center from Eldora, spoke on services the center offers. Central Iowa is looking to expand its current 18 county membership to other counties and would like to offer membership to Floyd County. There is no charge to members to join. The center’s fee for juveniles is $50 per day. Reed will provide the Auditor with information regarding joining. The Board will act on a resolution to join at tomorrow’s regular meeting.
Bob Lincoln, CPC/Case Management Director, introduced Patti Hammer, Case Manager.
Russell Novak, Perry Novak Electric, Vicki Hendershot, DHS representative, Sheriff Lynch, Bob Lincoln and the Board discussed a proposal for a wireless panic button system for the courthouse and DHS buildings. Novak will redo the proposal for the courthouse to better suit our needs and will meet with DHS and CPC/Case Management about their needs.
Jesse Marzen, County Attorney, Sheriff Lynch, and the Board discussed unpaid medical bills for a Floyd County inmate. Marzen informed the Board that the County is obligated to pay the bills and can then file a claim against the person for reimbursement. A new line item will be created in the Sheriff’s budget and this bill may cause the County to do a budget amendment before the end of the fiscal year. The Board would like to have a meeting with Bob Lincoln and Carol O’ Donnell regarding opportunities to cover these type of expenses through General Assistance sources.
A motion was made by Supervisor Enabnit and seconded by Supervisor Dunkel to adjourn. Motion carried 3-0.
