RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS.

Schwartz said that he supported a work session involving Cedar Falls Tourism.
Building Superintendent Rory Geving said that the Veterans Affairs community center in the Pinecrest Building is nearing completion. Veterans Affairs Commissioner Heidi Warrington said that the commission would like to recognize someone in the community in the naming of the center, and they would come to the Board later to discuss it.

She said there is money in the current year’s budget due to a vacancy to hire a network administrator now. She wanted to work with Aces on a new relationship where they would continue to provide certain services and be available for additional support for large projects. Little said that he wanted to see the effect on the FY21 budget before he decided. The Board gave her general support for pursuing the aims she outlined.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Trelka said the Waterloo Warming Center has been running for a week and is a significant success. He said Waterloo police have taken several homeless people there, which greatly reduces the amount of time the police have to spend with them. He said he was going to visit the bison herd at Hickory Hills Park.
Schwartz said that he worked a 2:00 am shift at the Warming Center, and recommended it as a good reminder of what is going on in the community, and a humbling experience.
