Four Supervisors attended the site inspection conducted by the Iowa DNR on August 1st and reviewed the master matrix.

Dawn Mentzer, County CPC Coordinator, informed the board that part-time employee Tami Mills-Thomas resigned her case management position. Some cases have been transferred to other counties, but other cases have been transferred to Carroll County. In addition, paperwork will increase when functional assessments are required for all consumers. Mentzer presented three options to reduce the burden of case management caseloads for the remaining staff: hire a new case manager, which would allow the county to receive referrals: increase work week to 40 hours; establish a waiting list for consumers. If a consumer is on a waiting list longer than 90 days, it becomes a denial of services. Mentzer noted that Medicaid would pay all costs associated with hiring an additional case manager. Following discussion, motion by Danzer, second by Nieland to authorize Mentzer to hire a full-time case manager. On roll call, all voted aye.
Board continued discussion of mental health regionalization. Beardmore plans to attend a committee meeting on August 16th in Johnston. There is also a meeting in Denison on August 22nd which several Supervisors plan to attend. Bock suggested talking to Plains Area Mental Health Center about offering the three core services Carroll County does not currently provide: family support, peer support, and health homes. If Carroll County successfully opts out of regionalization, Bock proposed that area counties could contract with Carroll County to provide services those counties do not offer. Nieland noted a major concern that two programs in Carroll County – work activity and the night-owl system – could not be offered unless we offer all core and expanded-core services. Danzer cautioned against taking action before the rules are written. Beardmore gave his opinion of four possible scenarios with Carroll County either opting out or joining various contiguous counties to form a region. Board will continue to study the situation and will acquire more information at the upcoming regional meetings.
Meiners reported on CADC and arbitration meeting for the Sheriff’s union.
Nieland reported on the Conservation board meeting, noting the board received a Warren Timmerman grant of $7,500 for trail restoration around Swan Lake, and RC&D conference call.
Danzer reported on Region XII board meeting, driveway site for Laverne Greving, and WESCO.
Bock reported on Raccoon River Watershed meeting.
Beardmore reported on Sheriff’s union arbitration meeting.
Motion by Danzer, second by Bock to adjourn at 11:26 a.m. On roll call, all voted aye.
