City Council meeting and attended the following meetings at NIACOG: North
Central Regional Emergency Planning District Committee, North Central Regional
Emergency Response Commission, and a Region 2 Transportation.
Bob Lincoln, CPC/Case Management/County Social
Services Director, proposed a redesign of targeted case management (TCM) into a
fully integrated and cost effective service that will support individuals with
disabilities to remain in their home.
Lincoln requested that the Board transfer governance of Floyd County
Case Management Services to the County Social Services Board. He will recommend that the County Social
Services Board expand their mission to include TCM. The outcomes are expected to keep TCM costs
below the state average, specialize TCM for complex needs, integration of TCM
into a Health Home delivery model, and exceed single entry point program
objectives in moving individuals out of segregated settings and back to the
Jim Dolan and Mark Cox, Allied Manatts Group, requested
that the Board consider implementing a local purchase policy per Iowa Code
23A,3 for purchasing goods or services.
Dusten Rolando, County Engineer, also received a letter from Grant
Cunninghame, AMG president, requesting consideration of a 5% margin for
accepting local bids and the taxes AMG pays in Floyd County. Supv Schwickerath commented that Croell Redi
Mix owns property in the county and pays taxes and employees Floyd County
residents. Cox commented that they
reviewed the past six years of the cost of rock in Floyd County compared to
Chickasaw County. Supv Kuhn said he
could not support going back to reconsider last week’s action since the county
does not have a local purchase policy in place and in review of Iowa Code
Chapter 26, a local preference would be required to be included in the public
bidding process. The Board will have the
County Attorney address whether or not the county could do anything different
for the action taken on April 8.
The Board reviewed the proposed Public Purpose
Policy. This will be acted on at the
next regular board meeting.
The Board noted the receipt of a letter from the Iowa
Department of Human Services noting that they intend to exercise the option to
extend the Assistance to Families and Children Services contract, #acfs 13-195,
second amendment, to June 30, 2015.
The Board noted the fees collected for the quarter
ending March 31 from the Auditor, Recorder and Sheriff.
The Board recessed at 10? And reconvened at 11 a.m.
Supv Kuhn visited with the county attorney regarding
the we cannot use local preference since we do
not have a policy in place Supv
Delbert Longley, Iowa Dept of Corrections, commented
that the comment in the jail inspection report by no means indicates that he
will be closing the jail down. His
remark was a comment, not a recommendation to shut down the facility but rather
to get the county to think about the future.
Longley some things need to be addressed that do not meet current
standards and things that can be corrected to meet current standards. The
county needs to think about where we will be in 10-15 years. Briefly –
admission and classification requires felons be kept away from those charged
w/misdemeanor, males from female, those convicted away from those just charged,
and juveniles from adults pending charges on the juvenile. Many new jails do not even meet all of the
standards. Public is coming into a
secured area of the jail which could lend itself with things like contraband
coming into the facility. Jailer
office/booking area is in a secure perimeter of the jail but the staff is
exposed to It is great that the
courtroom is very accessible for inmate but could be at risk in a volatile
situation. Storage could be tampered
with, cleaning supplies could potentially be accessible, Once you start
renovating areas, you often have to start w/ ly
New facility advice – national institute of corretions
in Aurora, Colorado preopening new institutions, get farm bureau on board,
supervisors be unified. Retain a jail
planner, construction management firm, architectural firm to do an
Future agenda items:
New website plans and County Social Services 28E agreement for April 22.
Kamm/Kuhn motioned to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried 3-0.
