Chairman opened a public hearing at 10:00 a.m. for consideration of a proposed change in an Urban Transition District from A-1 to B-1. The request was made by Gene Steffes to construct an office building in Section 21 Ewoldt Township. Planning and Zoning Director Carl Wilburn explained where the parcel was located and indicated it is in a flood plain. Wilburn stated he had heard from the City of Manning regarding their concern of the property being constructed in a flood plain. In attendance at the hearing were; Jeff Nelson representing the Aspinwall COOP and Gerald Snyder representing SF, LLC. Both voiced concerns about the new construction and possible effects on their properties with water flow and runoff. The Board reviewed the concerns and tabled a decision until they speak with the DNR and get their opinion on the proposed construction. The Board will hold another public hearing at a later date. Chairman closed the public hearing at 10:30 a.m.
The Board discussed an invoice received from Iowa Drainage District Association and a letter from the Sac County Board of Supervisors. Iowa Drainage District Association is requesting the county pledge $5,000/year for a three year time commitment to assist with the Des Moines Water Works lawsuit. The letter from Sac County Board of Supervisors suggest a better alternative to intervention by any group is to financially support their efforts in defending the action that is currently pending with Des Moines Water Works. They want the Board to consider contributing to their defense fund. The Board discussed the Des Moines Water Works lawsuit and possible impacts on Carroll County. The Board discussed possible funding options to contribute to the defense. County Attorney John Werden was in attendance. Werden addressed intervention versus defense. Following discussion, no formal action taken. The Board will address this issue at a later date.
