October 31, 2011, 9:00 AM


The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met for special session at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, October 31, 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. 

Supv Kamm attended an Area Economic Development meeting.  Potential new businesses were discussed.  Supvs Dunkel and Kamm attended a SW Bypass/TIF meeting regarding spending money for water drainage.  Supv Dunkel attended a County Social Services meeting where they reviewed the state’s template for regional services which is almost identical to what our 6-county region has already put in place; plans are to have at least three counties in a region with service population limits.  Supv Dunkel attended the Machine Tool Engineering open house last week.   

Chuck Souder and Randy Heitz, Farm Bureau representatives, provided a letter to the Board regarding concerns they have with the Floyd County Comprehensive Plan.  The Board will review the information prior to next week’s meeting for action.

The Auditor had Active Thermal Concepts, quote two areas for asbestos removal before new flooring can be put down.  ATC is the same company who will be abating asbestos on the two flooded properties and could complete a job for the jail intox room while they are in the area.  The Auditor will proceed with the asbestos removal for the jail room at a cost of approximately $1,500.  The Board suggested to not do anything with the County Attorney’s office for now.

The Board noted the hiring of Blair Redenius as an On-Site Monitor at $15 per hour as a temporary employee.  Redenius went through training last week to oversee the upcoming asbestos removal and demolition of the two flooded homes. 

The Board noted the receipt of a letter from the Delbert Longley, Iowa Dept of Corrections Chief Jail Inspector, regarding the September 2 jail inspection. 

Bob Lindsay, TGT Group Benefits broker representative, and Rachel Kane and Donielle Jarvela, Auxiant representatives, spoke to the board about Lindsay’s services, self funded health insurance, and a quote for a WellMark Blue Cross/Blue Shield product.  The Board will hold off reviewing proposed plan language for 2011.  Lindsay provided information on continuing self funding the health plan with Auxiant including stop loss coverage of $65,000 and compared it with various plans covered by WellMark Blue Advantage and Alliance Select, both self-funded and full-insured plans.  Auxiant also provided a 9-month review of the plan. 

Denise Ballard, Iowa Governmental Health Care Plan representative, and Tim Lowe, Bernie Lowe & Associates broker representative, spoke to the board about coverage with the Iowa Governmental Health Care Plan coverage.  Ballard reviewed the proposal for IGHCP and provided information on certain items that are standard coverage on their BCBS Alliance Select product combined with the versatility of the partially funded portion of the IGHCP plan.   

Future agenda items:  The Floyd County Library Association and Elderbridge Agency on Aging representatives have scheduled dates in November to meet with the Board regarding budgeting for FY13. 

Kamm/Kuhn moved to adjourn.  Motion carried 3-0.
