The Auditor presented concerns regarding county credit card usage/misuse.  The Board has made exceptions for some late fees, finance charges, missing receipts and excessive gratuities.  The Credit Card Policy reads that the employee will be responsible for charges not accounted for and the Board intends to enforce the policy from now on.  At the next Department Head meeting, the Board representative will remind Department Heads that credit card receipts must support itemized charges, meal receipts need to be itemized to verify there are no inappropriate charges, meal gratuities cannot exceed 15% and claims must be submitted timely.  

The Board noted the receipt of the Floyd County Independent Auditors’ Reports for the year ending June 30, 2009.  Discussion including findings related to the credit card policy, departments exceeding appropriations, a questionable expenditure for Veteran Affairs meals, business transactions between the county and county officials or employees, and a violation of policy regarding an employee hired by the VA Commission who was related to a Commissioner. 

The Auditor is planning to hold Employee Group meetings on May 13.  Presenters include representatives from Auxiant, Nationwide, Valic, NML, and possibly AFLAC and IPERS. 

The Board noted the fees collected by the Clerk of Court’s office for the month of February 2010 in the amount of $3,177.77.

The Board discussed activities with Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Services.
