A meeting of the Wayne County Board of Supervisors was held on the 24th day of July, 2017, in the Board Room of the Wayne County Courthouse, Corydon, Iowa, pursuant to notice duly given in compliance with Iowa Code Section 21.4. The Board noted due notice of meeting subject to said Code Section.
Present were David Dotts, Duffy Kester, John Sellers, members of the Board of Supervisors.
Unless otherwise noted, all motions were approved unanimously.
Sellers made the motion seconded by Kester to approve the Agenda with the addition of a letter concerning the proposed hog confinement in Section 1 of Richman Township.
Kester made the motion seconded by Sellers to approve the minutes of the July 10, 2017 meeting.
Sellers made the motion with a second by Kester to approve the claims.
Calls by citizens and a letter sent by Joe and Holly Throckmorton addressed concerns about the proposed hog confinement in Richman Township. Concerns included the smell, health and safety, water quality, and the roads in the area.
Trevor Wolf, Wayne County Engineer, discussed the progress of the bridge on Raccoon Rd. Clarke Co. drove the pilings with three other counties watching the progress. It was a very cost effective way to replace the bridge. The county will pour concrete for the bridge south of the elementary this week and next week. He told the supervisors that workers will go back to shouldering, mowing along highways, and spraying in August. Wolf is still in the process of hiring an assistant.
Trevor Wolf and Jack Reed, INCS Services, have shared information with the Board concerning a Light Duty Policy and a Return to Work Policy. Kester made a motion with a second by Sellers to table these policies until they can read and compare the information.
Tammy Clark, Wayne County Auditor, expressed the concerns of the offices in the courthouse with Access Systems. Access is under contract with Wayne County to address all IT issues at a cost of $2000 per month. Clark stated that offices can’t get into some programs that are needed to conduct county business as often as 2-3 times per week. Access Systems has an extremely long wait time to respond to provide the technical support needed. Kester made a motion with a second by Sellers to have County Attorney, Alan Wilson, draft a letter to Access Systems with documented concerns and giving them one month to fix the issues.
Kester made the motion with a second by Sellers to accept the semi-annual report of Kim Swearingin.
Monthly reports were approved from Keith Davis, Wayne County Sheriff; Angie Horton, Wayne County Recorder; and Kim Swearingin, Wayne County Treasurer.
Kester made the motion to adjourn the meeting with a second by Dotts at 11:05 AM.
