County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said she has reached a road maintenance agreement with RPM Access, which is proposing to build wind turbines in the southern part of the county as Washburn Wind Energy, LLC (WWE). She said that the county’s ordinance that addresses wind turbines is so comprehensive that the agreement is only a single page. It requires that WWE give 30 days’ notice of using a county road as a haul route, that it would provide dust control and gravel, make necessary temporary or permanent improvements like driveway entrances, obtain necessary permits, and pay miscellaneous engineering costs. She said their next step is to go to the Board of Adjustment in the fall, and she wanted this agreement in place before then. Little said that they must go to the Planning and Zoning Commission before they go to the Board of Adjustment, and Nicholas should go to both of those bodies if she has concerns.  Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held July 5, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.  CONSENT AGENDA  Laylin moved the following RESOLUTION seconded by Magsamen.  A. TO APPROVE, RECEIVE, PLACE ON FILE WITH THE COUNTY AUDITOR 1.

He, Supervisors Little, Laylin and Schwartz, and Seth Hyberger of Planning and Zoning explained that this action would normally follow a meeting and recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission, but it must also go to the Board of Adjustment for approval. The rezoning is for a trap shoot in August event that is potentially a large tourism event. While the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting will precede the Board of Adjustment meeting, the approval by the Board of Supervisors is required between the Planning and Zoning meeting and the Board of Adjustment meeting.   Therefore, the scheduling of the Board of Supervisors meeting, which requires between ten and twenty days’ notice, is needed now to anticipate the action of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Motion carried.  Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.  BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the IRS FORM 720 to remit payment of $2,104.90 for the County’s Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute fee for the 2015-16 plan year, as required by the Affordable Care Act, be approved and direct the chair to sign this form, as recommended by Stacy Wanderscheid and Renee McPhee, Perspective Consulting Partners, LLC.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.   NAYS:  None.  Resolution adopted.  Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Cathy Nicholas, Engineer, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to purchase a Sprayer from Dultmeier Sales of Omaha for $2,819, to be used to apply pesticides for vegetation control.    Nicholas said this low bid is $19 over the budgeted amount. The sprayer will fit in the back of a pickup and can be used to spray around guardrails and in ditches.  Motion carried.  Moved by Schwartz, seconded by Laylin that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Cathy Nicholas, Engineer, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to purchase two lawnmowers from P&K Midwest for $8,684.    Nicholas said the mowers are for the Elk Run Heights and La Porte City shops, to replace mowers that are 30 years old.  White said that County Maintenance just made a part-time employee full-time with one of his duties being the maintenance of county lots, and he could perhaps mow these Secondary Roads lots, saving the expense of new mowers. Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said he is doing a time study on the mowing of county lots and cemeteries, and once that is completed he’ll know better if it is feasible to add these lots. Magsamen said he didn’t mind delaying action to see if this plan would work out.  Moved by Magsamen, seconded by Schwartz to table the motion. Motion carried.  Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Cathy Nicholas, Engineer, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to purchase a Utility Trailer from Stokes Welding for $2,700, to be used to haul equipment.    Nicholas said her department doesn’t have a small trailer, and it would be better for hauling a concrete saw, to be sure it makes a smooth, straight cut. Motion carried.  Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Kim Veeder, IT Director, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: $4,985.46 for 6 laptops to be used by the Supervisors and the HR Director.  Motion carried.  Little moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.  BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the taxes due and payable of the submitted NON-ELIGIBLE persons who are NO LONGER ELIGIBLE pursuant to §427.9 of the Code of Iowa, including special assessments, and rates or charges, including interest, fees and costs in accordance with the provisions of §427.9 of the Code of Iowa, be REMOVED from the 2017-2018 tax suspension list and that the Chair direct the County Treasurer to adjust her records accordingly.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.   NAYS:  None.  Resolution adopted.  Little moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.  BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the taxes due and payable of the submitted ELIGIBLE persons who CONTINUE TO BE ELIGIBLE pursuant to §427.9 of the Code of Iowa including special assessments and rates or charges, including interest, fees and costs, in accordance with the provision of §427.9 of the Code of Iowa, be suspended for the 2017-2018 and that the Chair direct the County Treasurer to adjust her records accordingly and that future property taxes on property owned by the submitted person will annually be reviewed and considered for suspension for such time as the persons remains the owner of that parcel and during the period the person receives such as assisted as described in §427.9 of the Code of Iowa.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.   NAYS:  None.  Resolution adopted.  Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the TRAVEL REQUEST submitted by Debi Bunger, Human Resources Director, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: $768.90 for Marianne Wood, Amanda Fesenmeyer, and Debi Bunger to attend the Fall 2017 Employment Law Conference in Altoona, Iowa on September 27, 2017.    Little said one employee should stay behind so that the Human Resources Office wouldn’t have to close. Bunger said these meetings only occur twice a year, that visitors to the office are directed to staff in the adjacent Building Maintenance Office, and she monitors her emails remotely. Little said that wasn’t the same as keeping the office open.  Motion carried.  ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Magsamen said that County Social Services has reported that it was finally successful in getting state approval for subacute beds for mentally ill individuals. He said the county is moving ahead in getting better mental health services.  Schwartz noted that his nephews were in attendance at the meeting, and that he had also taken them to Hickory Hills County Park.  On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.  Frank Magsamen, Chair, Board of Supervisors                                  Grant Veeder, County Auditor
