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

Bruce Hovden, County Assessor, the Auditor and the Board reviewed Iowa Code 427 with respect to the slough bill and an e-mail from ISAC with the position that the Board can opt to discontinue the slough bill.  The Auditor and Chairman Dunkel reported on conversations with NRCS staff who were notified of todayís meeting.  Discussion included the work the NRCS office does in processing applications, the values, acres and classifications of property previously approved for exemption, and if the Board decides to discontinue the slough bill, ISACís recommendation to do so by a resolution.  The Board will act on this at a future date.  Exemptions for taxes payable in FY11 have already been approved.

Chairman Dunkel informed the Board that Kay Wielinski does not intend to continue serving on the Mental Health Board after June 30, 2010.  Other potential candidates to serve in this capacity were discussed.

Appointments to other various boards with terms ending June 30 were discussed.

The Board reviewed a proposed Social Host Ordinance for Floyd County.  The Auditor reported that Norm Klemesrud, County Attorney, was provided with three sample ordinances to review as well as other information he had available on the subject.  Klemesrud replied with having no issues with the recent ordinance verbiage that Mitchell County recently approved.  The Board will set a date for a public hearing and first reading of the ordinance at the next regular board meeting.

The Board noted fees collected by the Clerk of Court for the month of April. 

The Auditor informed the Board of her conversation with Bob Josten, Bond Attorney, regarding the Recovery Zone Bond allocation to Floyd County.  Josten reported that the amount allocated to Floyd County is not likely enough to be able to work with and that we do not need to respond to the recent paperwork the county received unless the County has applicable projects for the bonds.  The Auditor also contacted Tim Fox, Area Development Executive Director, who spoke with the City of Charles City but didnít believe they would have a use for the allocation.  Supv Dunkel commented that the bonds are mainly directed for the Cedar Rapids area and unused allocations will be reallocated as needed.  

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