The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for workshop session at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, July 12, 2010 in the Board Room of the Floyd County Courthouse with the following in attendance:  Chairman Dunkel, Supv. Enabnit, and Supv. Staudt. 

Enabnit/Staudt moved to approve the agenda as presented.  Motion carried 3-0.

The Board will review claims individually after the meeting.

Mark Melrose, Melrose Insurance Agent, presented the FY11 renewal insurance policy information with EMC Insurance Companies.  Premiums are increasing over $39,000.  Discussion included a review of policy schedule where premiums are increasing, the Risk Management Committee’s efforts to help reduce the cost and number of claims, the Board designating medical providers for work comp claims and implementing a return to work policy.

The Auditor presented FY11 budget amendment information including adjustments for the Urban Renewal road projects, debt service payments on road projects, FEMA buyouts, Conservation Reserve Projects, and Veteran Affairs grant.  Discussion included reducing an economic development line item, not budgeting to cover a trailer for Search & Rescue’s utility vehicle, and departmental expenditure increases and undesignated/unreserved fund balance decreases compared to FY06.  

The Board noted the receipt of a letter from the Iowa Department of Public Health regarding a recent visit and review to determine compliance with the Iowa Administrative Code and the current Local Public Health Services Contract (LPHS).  The compliance report indicates that the Public Health/Home Health Care agency was found to be in full compliance in all areas reviewed. 

The Board noted a letter of resignation from Todd Prichard as a Veteran Affairs Commissioner due to time constraints on his schedule as a part time assistant county attorney as well as his commitment to his private practice.  The Board discussed potential appointments to fill this vacancy.  Marci Hall-Jacobsen, VA Director, is checking for potential candidates.

The Board noted fees collected for the month of June by the Clerk of Court and quarterly fees collected for the quarter ending June 30 by the Sheriff, Recorder and Auditor.

The Board noted that last week Supv Staudt approved the fireworks permit for J& M Displays be continued from July 4 to July 10 due to rain on July 4.  Appropriate insurance coverage came with the request last week to allow for the rain date.  Supv Dunkel suggested that future applications include a rain date.

The Auditor reminded the Board of a seminar at NIACC in Mason City on Wednesday to examine the 2008 floods and how Iowans can prepare for future disasters. 

Jeff Sherman, Zoning/E-911 Signs/Sanitarian Director, updated the Board on the complaint of garbage on property owned by Ronald Polen that was discussed on July 1.  Sherman stated that the garbage is now in a dumpster on the property. 

Future agenda items:  1) Auxiant’s mid-year review of the county’s health insurance on July 19; 2) Public Health Dept’s request to discuss purchasing electronic medical records on July 26. 

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