The Board of Supervisors of Carroll County, Iowa met in regular adjourned session in the Boardroom of the Courthouse, in Carroll, Iowa, the County seat of said County on Monday, November 8, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. Central Standard Time pursuant to law, the rules of said Board and to the adjournment with the following members present: Dan Nieland, Mark Beardmore, Sheryl Wegner and Eugene Meiners. Marty Danzer was absent.
Motion by Beardmore, second by Wegner to approve the agenda with one addition: update on farm lease. On roll call, all present voted aye.
Motion by Nieland, second by Beardmore to approve the minutes of the November 1, 2010 meeting as written. On roll call, all present voted aye.
Dawn Mentzer, CPC Administrator, reviewed a proposed substance abuse treatment contract with Community and Family Resources located in Fort Dodge. Mentzer reported it has been difficult to place individuals at CFR due to the lack of a contract. The proposed contract is not in agreement with the county’s Substance Abuse policy, so the board requested that John Hostetler, executive director of CFR, meet with the Supervisors. The Code of Iowa mandates payment of attorney and sheriff fees for substance abuse commitments, but not treatment costs. Mentzer reported that a review of eleven counties in the northwest region of Iowa showed only two, including Carroll County, provide any funding for substance abuse treatment.
Mentzer gave an update on case management caseload composition in Carroll and Buena Vista Counties. With the resignation of a case manager in Buena Vista, the resulting caseloads in BV would be higher than those in Carroll County. Currently twelve Carroll County consumers are being served in Buena Vista and Mentzer intends to transfer ten back to Carroll County for case management services. Two would be transferred to DHS due to having state case status. Mentzer emphasized the need for flexibility between the two counties.
County Engineer reported there are two beaver dams in Drain 77 that need to be removed and the beaver need to be trapped, as they are destroying trees. Nieland will talk to employees in the conservation department about trapping the beaver.
Engineer also reported on drain repairs needed in Drain 97, in Section 10 of Richland Township; in Drain 67, Section 5 of Union Township; and in Drain 76, Section 21 of Grant Township. Motion by Beardmore, second by Nieland to approve the repairs to Drains 97, 67 and 76. On roll call, all present voted aye. Engineer also discussed options for Drain 29 in the city of Glidden. Engineer Paulson and two Supervisors will meet with the Glidden city council to see what the city is willing to contribute to the project, which could cost $20,000 depending on which option is chosen.
Engineer reported on a future Federal Aid project. His proposed project is the concrete overlay of Granite Avenue from Halbur to Highway 141, a seven-mile stretch at an estimated cost of $200,000 per mile. The project would be slated for 2015.
