Gail Arjes informed the board that we should be getting H1N1 vaccinations within a month or so. Floyd County will receive $66,931 in federal funding to use for H1N1 advertising, education, vaccination clinics and other related purposes. Arjes intends to apply funds toward a purpose-built refrigerator, advertising, clinics and staff who will be picking up more hours for clinics, education, and other H1N1 purposes. Arjes will not need to seek approval for purchases over $500 from the Board as long as she complies with grant guidelines. Seasonal flu vaccination clinics have been postponed due to running out of vaccine and will be rescheduled when remaining shipments arrive.
Arjes informed the Board that Floyd County received notice of acceptance for a grant award of $100,000 for mental health counseling in the Charles City School District. The grant was initiated by school counselors and Andy Pattee, superintendent, and was submitted through the Public Health Board.
Arjes met with Judy Hauser, Floyd County Heart to Home Hospice and Dixie, North Iowa Hospice, regarding the county leasing the Hospice building. New carpet will be installed and walls will be painted within the next month or so. Due to liability, North Iowa Hospice may chose to wait until January 1 before the County can occupy the building.
The Board noted the Certification of County Conservation Purposes Support by County Property Taxes at a levy rate of $0.41552 per thousand of assessed taxable property which is above the required rate of $0.22 per thousand in order to qualify for the distribution of county per capita REAP funds and grants.
The Board discussed what supplies will be needed for the Tire Cleanup Day.
Lisa Adelmund, Chamber/Community Revitalization Financial Project Manager, and the Board discussed historical preservation guidelines for the brick replacement project and an opportunity for the Main Street Challenge Grant.
A motion was made by Supervisor Enabnit and seconded by Supervisor Dunkel to adjourn. Motion carried 3-0.
