Resolution adopted.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said that after several days of rain, about fourteen gravel roads are closed due to water on the road or scouring. No major roads are closed, but water is within two feet of Cedar Wapsi Road near the Wapsipinicon River. She said no gravel will be laid on scoured roads until the forecast rain ceases. She is having pictures taken to document the damage in case of a FEMA declaration. White said he heard that sand wasn’t delivered to the Moose Lodge for sandbags. Nicholas said that she couldn’t reach the Lodge and was waiting for permission.
Nicholas said she would like to change portions of McStay and Croxton Roads to Class C, because they are both now dead-ended at Highway 20. With McStay Road, she said the neighbors complain that garbage is dumped on the road, which is not monitored or maintained by the county, and they would like a gate at the north end, which she is not opposed to. It would need to be wide enough for farm machinery to get through. Little said there is trash dumping all over the rural area and he didn’t think that was a sufficient reason to erect a gate that would be the county’s liability, and felt the road should be vacated. Magsamen asked what the effect of vacation would be. Nicholas said the farmers to the north would have access to their land but the farmers to the south would not. She said Croxton Road is similar, that no one lives on it and the county does not maintain it. Magsamen asked if there is interest in vacating Croxton Road. Nicholas said that like with McStay Road, some of the adjacent landowners wouldn’t have direct access to their fields. Magsamen asked her to get the difference in cost to the county of barricading (which would occur with a road vacation) and gating the roads.
Nicholas said that a presentation of the Iowa Communities Assurance Pool (ICAP), which insures the county, highlighted the increase in rear-end collisions in rural areas, which led her to put reflective decals on several county vehicles. She said the cost is $300-$400 a vehicle, and she will ask for funding to decal more vehicles in her FY20 budget request.
County Treasurer Rita Schmidt said that there is a statewide shortage of the yellow decals needed for renewing vehicle registrations, so her office may run out for a week, during which time paper renewals will be used. She said she would alert area law enforcement.
Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held August 28, 2018 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

WHEREAS, diabetes is an ongoing public health crisis, and
WHEREAS, prevention and early detection are the best tools to combating this epidemic
NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that we, the Black Hawk County Board of Supervisors, do hereby declare this first week of September, 2018 to be diabetes awareness week. The Board of Supervisors encourages all residents of Black Hawk County to attend Focus on Diabetes which will include free diabetes screenings, and tutorials on ways to both prevent and manage diabetes.

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the LOWEST REASONABLE BID received from Tyler Technologies for tax administration software at the Courthouse with a bid of $475,024.00.00 be approved as recommended by Kim Veeder, Information Technology Director.
Veeder said bids were received from Tyler and from Solutions, Inc., and while Solutions could commit to only 83% of requested technical items, and would charge an additional $275,500 for custom modifications, Tyler committed to 93% of the technical requests, and gave a daylong product demonstration that satisfied the county assessor, auditor and treasurer. She said that Linn County and possibly Polk County will switch to Tyler, creating a large-county grouping that would help Black Hawk County have a greater impact on future enhancements. Magsamen asked for an implementation date. Veeder said that Tyler has committed to February 14, 2020, and that the contract will have penalties for missing that date.
