Waterloo, Iowa December 28, 2016

 

                The Board of Supervisors of the County of Black Hawk, in the State of Iowa, met in regular adjourned meeting at the Courthouse in Waterloo, County Seat of said County, at nine o’clock (9:00) a.m., pursuant to law, to the rules of said Board, and to adjournment.  The meeting was called to order and on roll call there were present: Linda Laylin, Chair; Tom Little, Frank Magsamen and Craig White.

                Absent:  John Miller

 

                Unless otherwise noted, all actions were approved unanimously.

 

                Moved by Little, seconded by Magsamen that the AGENDA be received and place on file with the County Auditor as approved.  Moion carried.

 

                PUBLIC COMMENTS:  Quintin Neuenkirk said the County purchased the building at 1600-1602 Lafayette St. which is next to his for $11,537 because the taxes haven’t been paid for several years.  He asked that the Board consider selling it to him for $11,537 but forgive the other $13,000 of back taxes so he can fix it up and get it back on the tax rolls.  He says it is in need of roof repair and electrical and plumbing repairs.  He is proposing putting in a store to help low income folks.  Sherman Lundy with the Black Hawk Soil & Water Conservation District thanked the Board and especially John Miller for being advocates of water issues.  With Miller and Conservation Director Vern Fish leaving, there will be vacancies on both the Upper and Middle Watershed Management Authorities.  He said it is important for continuing to stay on top of the issues of clean water, conservation etc.  Wayne McGarvey spoke before the board to seek answers to questions regarding the Wind Farm Ordinance and the project that is in the works near his farm in Eagle Township.  He believes the company seeking to put the wind farm up is proceeding with a driveway to property before permits have even been granted.  He said wind farms are only good for the tax credits available and they don’t work.  Board members encourage him to speak with one of them after the meeting.

 

White moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED  by the Board of Supervisors of Black Hawk County, that the Board of Supervisors APPROVE EXPENDITURES, and that the County Auditor be authorized and directed to ISSUE CHECKS, against the various settlement of such claims as allowed:
