Floyd County Board of Supervisors Meeting

December 21, 2009, 9:00 AM


The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for a workshop session at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, December 21, 2009 in the Board Room of the Floyd County Courthouse with the following in attendance:  Chairman Staudt and Supv. Enabnit; absent:  Supv. Dunkel

Eanbnit/Staudt moved to approve the agenda as presented.  Motion carried 2-0. 

The Board will review the claims individually after the meeting.

Bridget Moe, Emergency Management Coordinator, spoke to the Board about revising the Community Disaster Grant application from purchasing tornado sirens to purchasing river/stream gauges and software.  Moe has visited with Homeland Security about this revision and they have no objections.  Jeff Sherman, Zoning/E911 Addressing/Sanitarian, provided quotes for the project.  This will be acted on at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

Moe and Sherman provided a proposal to share office space by taking over the Public Health/Home Health Care office on first floor after PH/HHC moves to the Hospice building.  The proposal includes the benefits of sharing office space, including sharing secretarial staff, sharing equipment, and E911 responsibilities.

Bob Lincoln, CPC/Case Management Director, shared information with the Board on how the new Mental Health funds will be distributed for the County Social Services 28E.  Butler County will be the fiscal agent for MH funds and the five counties will transfer Fund 10 money to Butler.  Discussion included changes to the FY11 budget form, moving case management to a sub fund of the general fund, and legislative talk about regionalizing MH services across the state.

The Board discussed FY11 salary/wage for budgeting purposes.  The Auditor will notify department heads to budget a 0% increase for non-union/non-bargaining unit employees and employees not tied to an elected official’s salary. 

The Board reviewed an updated bid from WBC Mechanical Inc for replacing the boiler receiver tank.  Earlier this year three bids were obtained but the replacement was put off to see if the county would be successful with grants for a new HVAC system.  The Auditor informed the Board that the leak is now almost continuous and is pitting the floor.  The Board will act on this issue at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

The Auditor provided three options for the 2010 Holiday schedule based on previous discussions.  The options include 9 or 10 scheduled holidays or 9 scheduled holidays and one floating holiday.  The Board will act on this at tomorrow’s regular meeting.

The Board noted receipt of letters from the Floyd County Community Grant Foundation.  Applications for the Sparky costume and trailer for a utility vehicle were denied.  The Charles City Area Development Corp-Leadership10 grant was approved for $3,181.85.

The Board noted the termination of Dale Gillespie, Home Health Aide, effective December 15, 2009.

A motion was made by Supervisor Enabnit and seconded by Supervisor Staudt to adjourn.  Motion carried 2-0.
