The toolbox will build on existing resources and will include topics related to zoning, solar access laws, permitting, model contracts, ownership options, finance options and interconnection agreements.
Supv Kuhn presented two job descriptions, one for Floyd County Sanitarian/E911 Addressing Administrator and one for Zoning Administrator/GIS Technician. Supv Kamm provided a letter from Dennis White endorsing the Board not make any changes to the operations of the Board of Health/Zoning Department.

The Board noted a resolution from the City of Rockford for bonding purposes.
Future agenda items: consider adjusting the next workshop meeting to accommodate Supv Schwickerath’s schedule.
