County Attorney John Werden met with the Board to discuss the courtroom remodeling project. The Board explained that they felt proper procedure was not followed in regards to obtaining bids and budgeting for the project. Werden explained that bids were obtained and will provide them to the Supervisors. Werden will pay for the paint and carpet for the existing small courtroom, offices, and hallway from the Attorney Collection and Forfeiture Fund. Werden explained that work in the new courtroom has been delayed due to the Contractor’s schedule. The Board would like to budget for this project in FY17. No formal action taken.

Paulson discussed Drain 54 in Section 26 Richland Township and Drain 89 in Section 22 Union Township. Both drains are in need of repair. Paulson explained that the repair on Drain 89 will be more intensive than a simple fix. The Board had previously approved a minor repair. Following discussion, motion by Beardmore, second by Schettler to approve repair on Drain 54 in Section 26 Richland Township and to move forward with repairs on Drain 89 in Section 22 Union Township. On roll call, all voted aye.

Western Iowa Networks bid of $5,638.05 and Scott Telephone bid of $5,520 for 10 phones and $4,995 for four phones. Paulson explained they will be able to use existing phones with the Scott system. Following discussion, motion by Bock, second by Beardmore to approve the $4,995 bid from Scott Telephone. On roll call, all voted aye.

Ambulance Director Pat Gray met with the Board to discuss part time paramedic wages. Beardmore updated the Board on information obtained from the union representative. The union will not provide a letter stating that the part time increase would not affect future union negotiations. Following discussion, motion by Bock to increase the part time paramedic wages to $17.30 per hour. The motion failed for lack of a second. Motion by Beardmore, second by Schettler to increase the part time paramedic wages to $17.45 per hour, with the intent to match FY16 & FY17 full time paramedic’s salaries and to readdress the issue for FY18 budgeting at the discretion of the Board depending on the results.
