BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the CONTRACT AMENDMENT between Black Hawk County and O’Keefe Elevator Company, Omaha, NE to remove Country View from the existing contract (effective January 1, 2019) and to add the Hartman Reserve elevator (effective February 1, 2019) expiring June 30, 2020 be approved as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None.

Motion carried.
Moved by White, seconded by Schwartz to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing to be held at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed Ordinance No. 77-222 from a request submitted by Deanna J. Junkins at 6736 N. Butler Road to rezone 2.9 acres from “A” Agriculture District to “A-R” Agricultural-Residential District to build a new single family home. Motion carried.
The Board of Supervisors discussed extending a Veteran’s Affairs employee’s lay off date in order to train an incoming employee. Assistant County Attorney Michael Treinen said that the lateral transfer of an employee from Country View is causing the layoff, and VA Director Kevin Dill said he has the funds to employ both individuals for the time needed. Treinen said that no action is needed since the director has the authority under state law to spend approved budgetary funds at his discretion. White said the period shouldn’t be limited since there are veterans in need. Schwartz said that if a veterans’ center is approved in the FY20 budget, more staff may be needed, and it would make sense to keep current staff. The Board took no action.
The Board of Supervisors discussed various aspects of the FY20 Black Hawk County Budget. Finance Director Susan Deaton reviewed possible meeting dates and some of the information she could make available. She asked the Board to give feedback on strategies regarding requests, valuations, tax rates, the state backfill for commercial and industrial taxable valuation reduction, insurance, rural vs. general fund usage, etc. The Board tentatively planned to meet for budgets on Jan. 15, Jan. 18, Jan. 24 (morning and afternoon), Jan. 29, Jan. 31 and if necessary Feb. 5 and 7.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
Tom Little, Chair, Board of Supervisors
Grant Veeder, County Auditor
