PRESENTATION

  1. Black Hawk Creek Water and Soil Coalition presentation by Clark Porter.

Mr. Porter lives and farms in Black Hawk County and also farms in Grundy County.  He found that Black Hawk Creek didn’t have a watershed coalition, so he has begun the formation of the group.  Contact has been made with the Natural Resources Conservation Services, Soil and Conservation Districts in both counties, and the Department of Natural Resources.  About twenty individuals have been contacted but there are many more to go as the watershed covers 217,000 acres.  Pioneer Hi-Bred and Crop Production Services have also been contacted.  The watershed is E. coli impaired and delivers 2,720 tons of nitrates into Cedar River every year.  They are also working with Middle Cedar Watershed Management Authority.  A trash pick-up day is scheduled for 4/22/17 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.  The meeting place will be at the Pat Bowlsby Dog Park across from Veridian Credit Union on Ansborough Avenue in Waterloo.  The board will likely hear from us again in the future as we grow the coalition and seek grants to assist in costs.  Magsamen said the Legislature has announced that $1.5 million dollars planned for the Iowa Flood Center has been cut from the budget.  Porter said both federal and state level funding has continued to disappear.

 

RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS

County Engineer Catherine Nicholas said the gravel roads are improving and it seems we have escaped most of the frost boil problems.  Maintenance staff is working on retrieving gravel from the ditches on both gravel and hard surface roads.

 

                Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held April 4, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted.  Motion carried.

The Board of Supervisors examined proof of publication of notice to bidders and determined that said notice had been published in the Waterloo Courier on April 3, 2017 in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Iowa

 

The Chair announced the following sealed bids were all received by eight-thirty o’clock (8:30) a.m. Tuesday April 11, 2017 as stated in the Notice to Bidders.  The time of announcement being nine-twenty-six o’clock (9:26) a.m., the following bids were opened and read:

                The Board accepted discussion on the project scope change for generator at Pinecrest building as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.   Geving said there was $160,000 in the FY2017 budget for this project.  The plan was to refurbish and reuse the generator that came from the Jail.  Shive-Hattery is assisting with the design and it turns out that it will be quite expensive ($200,000) to upgrade the used generator to meet emission.  A new 260 kw generator would cost about $158,000.  Geving also said the Health Department has federal grant monies of $20,000 toward this project.  The old generator, currently in storage at Conservation, will be listed on govdeals.com for sale.

 

                Little moved the following resolution seconded by White.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve up to $160,000 for the purchase of a new generator for the Pinecrest Office Building.

                AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.

                NAYS:  None.                                                     Resolution adopted.

 

                REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. White offered condolences to the family of Jon Crews.  Magsamen thanked all who supported the very successful Variety Show that raised money for the Honor Flight Program in the Cedar Valley.  Schwartz commented on how extraordinarily short sided the gutting of the funding for the Iowa Flood Center is with the ninety-six million dollar HUD grant that includes the Middle Cedar Watershed Management Authority.  It really jeopardizes the availability of the data needed for that project and other critical data provided understanding the massive floods we have had in Iowa over the last 10 years.

 

                On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.  Little/Schwartz  9:34 am
