Update on various boards/commissions/activities since the last meeting: Supv Kamm reported that last week’s District II Supervisor’s meeting was good although the attendance was down slightly. Supv Dunkel attended the Department Head meeting. The Board discussed how the landfill pays for attending meetings and other board activities. Supv Kuhn attended a Watershed Management Authority where they discussed possibly know about funding for a planning project from Iowa Economic Development by February. Dr Larry Weber, Iowa Flood Center, attended the meeting and gave information on their planning which will include choosing a Huck 12 watershed area to improve for flood mitigation but it may be a year before the specific area is determined.
Supv Dunkel reported that the county will be receiving a check for the overpayment on the flood buyout from one of the property owners. This is based on the recalculated HUD closing form.
Tim Fox, Area Economic Development Executive Director, requested of the Board to relocate an enterprise zone area from the City of Floyd to an unincorporated area by Charles City. This will require a petition of the Board to Iowa Economic Development Authority requesting the relocation. The purpose of the relocation is for consideration of a future project.
Fox and the Board discussed ADM project and the process for filling the Chamber of Commerce’s vacated position.
The Board discussed the FY14 budget process including planning what directives to provide departments heads for wages and a schedule of times to start meeting with the Board.
The Board noted the receipt of a letter from the Floyd County Medical Center providing notice that they will not be requesting tax assistance from the County’s General Fund for FY14. The letter also provides points that may reflect on future tax requests, such as reduced Medicare funding, the sequester of a 2% federal agreement, Wellmark’s new payment policy, a decrease in Medicaid payment rates, payment rates for “Obamacare”, and the cost of mandated electronic health record systems.
The Board noted the receipt of NIACC New Jobs Training Certificates
Future agenda items: appointment to the fiber optics/broadband committee, a resolution committing to the Winnebago Scout Camp, and the canvas for the special election.
