The Floyd County Board of Supervisors met in the Board Room of the Floyd County Courthouse with the following in attendance:  Supv. Schwickerath, Vice Chair and Supv Kamm; Absent Supv. Kuhn, Chair

Schwickerath/Kamm moved to approve the agenda as presented.  Motion carried 2-0.

The Board conducted the annual cash count. 

Updates on previous boards/commissions/activities:  Supv Kamm attended a Middle School Repurposing meeting where attendees were divided into three groups to research various uses of other school buildings and participated in a conference call with a bonding attorney regarding enterprise zones, TIFs, and urban renewal areas.   Supv Schwickerath attended a FMC Governance Board where they formalized changes with directors and a County Social Services meeting where discussion included budgets and carryover balances which look good, legislative changes, and impact of Medicare/Medicaid and health care reform.  

The Auditor informed the Board of courthouse projects including the roof, problems with the courtroom air conditioner, carpet for third and fourth floor, cleaning carpet for other offices, and replacing window air conditioners.  Discussion also included past engineering and architectural reports for window replacement, roof replacement, and heating/cooling system, and a sprinkler budgeting and bonding options.  The Auditor will get quotes to replace the air conditioner and make some contacts with roofing companies.

The Board discussed how to split the wages for the Zoning Administrator/Safety Coordinator position.  The Planning/Zoning responsibilities will be paid out of the Rural Services Fund and the Safety Coordinator responsibilities would be paid out of the General Fund.  With the changes to the job description, the Planning/Zoning budget will likely need to be amended to cover a larger portion of wages that what was originally approved.  The Auditor suggested that the Board may want to consider establishing a Safety Department in FY14.  The Board will act on how to split the wages at the July 9 meeting so wages can be paid for the July 12 pay day. 

The Board noted letters from Sheriff Rick Lynch stating that Deputy Joel Cannon is retiring as of June 30 and Deputy Chris Myers will not be returning to Floyd County following his unpaid leave.  Joshua Patrie started today and is already certified through the law enforcement academy.  Jeremy Irirate will start August 18 and needs to go through certification.

Future agenda items:  Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center audit report.

Kamm/Schwickerath motioned to adjourn the meeting.  Motion carried 2-0.
