Enabnit/Dunkel moved to approve the agenda.  Motion carried 3-0

The Board will review the claims individually after the meeting.

Mr. Jack Krugman discussed with the Board his situation involving the E911 sign located on his property.  He reported to the Board that the E911 sign that was located on his property had broken.  He stated that he had repaired the sign and made a sturdier replacement.  Before he could get his replacement up, someone came and put up another sign.  He stated that he was billed for this replacement.  He disagreed with the fact that he wasn’t contacted about getting a replacement sign installed.  He took down the installed replacement sign, put up the sign he had repaired, and brought back the new one that had been installed on his property.  He talked to Jeff Sherman about getting the $20 charge waived for this sign.  He was informed that he needed to discuss this situation with the Board to get their input on this situation.  The Board thanked Mr. Krugman for attending the workshop and told him they would address this matter at the regular meeting on Tuesday, December 8, 2009.

Lahoma Counts, Elderbridge Agency on Aging, gave a presentation to the Board about Elderbridge and the services that it provides for the elderly.  She reviewed the budgets and the cuts in revenues, the effect of the cuts on services, educating seniors, and elder abuse.  She presented to the Board her request for FY 2011 Match Fund Request for July, 2010 thru June 30, 2011.  This request was for $10,306.80, which is an increase from $2.40 to $2.52, which is a 5% increase from FY10.  The Board stated that they would take this into consideration when planning on the FY11 budget.

The Board reviewed the nominees to be appointed to the various county boards and discussed a nomination to the Floyd County Memorial Hospital Commission.

The Board noted the letter from the State Historical Society of Iowa regarding FY10 Historic Site Preservation Grant Program (HSPG).  The letter stated that Floyd County had been denied the grant which was to be used for courthouse projects.

The Board noted the email from the Office of Energy Independence regarding the State Energy Program grant application for HVAC system.  The email stated that Floyd County had also been denied this grant.

Deputy Auditor, Sandra Hicks, told the Board that Gloria had called her that morning before the meeting and had told her that Floyd County was not approved for the other SEP grant  that would have been use to pay for ˝ of the HVAC project.  Lisa Adelmund from the Charles City Chamber was present and discussed with the Board things that could be done to possibly help Floyd County get grant approval.

There were no future agenda items to discuss.

A motion was made by Supervisor Dunkel and seconded by Supervisor Enabnit to adjourn.  Motion carried 3-0.
