Floyd County Board of Supervisors Meeting

June 13, 2011, 9:00 AM


The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for workshop at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, June 13, 2011 in the Board Room of the Floyd County Courthouse with the following in attendance:  Chairman Dunkel, Supv Kamm, and Supv. Kuhn.

Kamm/Kuhn moved to approve the agenda as presented.  Motion carried 3-0.

The Board will review claims individually after the meeting.

Supv Kamm updated the Board on the Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center.  Supv Dunkel spoke about mental health funding and that many CPC/Mental Health Coordinators expect counties to be out of money in February but Senators Ragan and House Representative Upmeyer disagree.  Supv Dunkel commented about practices of the landfill. 

The Board reviewed the revised agreement between Floyd County and MZ4LLLP regarding the purchase Zeran half of the dam in Rockford.  The Board would like “spillway” defined in the agreement and believes it is the concrete box immediately adjacent to the foundation of the millhouse.  The Board would like the last sentence in section 21A that reads, “BUYER’S obligation to maintain…” removed and to include in this section that the initial inspection takes place prior to removal of the dam and the final inspection is completed within 90 days after the removal of the dam.  The Board and Auditor discussed various scenarios with respect to the millhouse being sold prior to the removal of the dam, whether or not the agreement can be re-assigned or if it is “personal” to MZ4LLLP only, and if the agreement should include language to cover various situations.  The Board would like Norm to be present at the June 20 workshop meeting to discuss issues and further negotiations on the agreement. 

The Board discussed transferring funds from Conservation/General Fund to the Conservation Reserve Fund.  The Conservation Dept received $16,747.23 in FY11 for CRP payments, camping fees, land rents, facility rent and misc.  Doug Schroeder, Conservation Director, provided a letter showing the revenues along with a statement that the Conservation Board requested making available the unused $12,000 from the Conservation Dept budgeted line item for a motor vehicle that will not be used for the upcoming dam project.  The Board discussed transferring the revenues plus $12,000 to the Conservation Reserve Fund and then pay $12,000 toward the dam project as a capital project through the Conservation Reserve fund. 

The Board noted that the April Wantenpuhl, jailer, will be moving from part-time to full-time starting July 1, 2011 with an annual salary of $26,832.  Lead Jailer Minessa Wiltse will be assuming the courthouse security position that was previously scheduled for Matt Lovik who was recently hired as a Deputy Sheriff. 

The Board discussed having the annual cash count meeting on June 30 at 4 p.m. rather than July 1.

The Board noted the receipt of a letter from Larry Montgomery, Civil Service Commission Chair, stating that Jim Jorgensen will be resigning as a commissioner at the end of his term, June 30, 2011.  The Board noted that this appointment is filled by the Floyd County Attorney rather than the Board of Supervisor.  The Auditor has informed Attorney Klemesrud about the appointment.

The Board noted $3,733.99 in fees collected by the Clerk of Court for the month of May.

Supv Kuhn excused himself from the meeting.

The Board postponed discussion regarding the Employee Handbook revisions.

Future agenda items:  NIJDC 28E agreement, employee evaluations.

Kamm/Dunkel motioned to adjourn.  Motion carried 2-0.
