Increasing the Veteran Affairs Commission from Three to Five
Commissioners: Whereas, Iowa Code
Chapter 35B.3 allows the county commission of veteran affairs to consist of
either three or five persons, as determined by the board of supervisors, and
Iowa Code Chapter 35B.4 requires that if the board of supervisors increases the
commission of veteran affairs membership to five members, the initial terms of
the two new members shall be two and three years respectively, and Whereas, the
Floyd County Board of Supervisors deems it is in the best interest of the veterans
of Floyd County to have representation from five commissioners instead of
three, and deems it appropriate for a regular term to be three years and limit
the number of terms for each commissioner to serve to a maximum of three
consecutive terms. Therefore, be it
resolved by the Floyd County Board of Supervisors that the membership of the
Floyd County Veteran Affairs Commission be increased from three to five
commissioners effective April 1, 2014 with one new commissioner being appointed
to a term ending June 30, 2016 and one new commissioner being appointed to a
term ending June 30, 2017, and be it also resolved that all commissioners be
