Board Minutes June 6, 2017

The Adams County Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, at 9:00 AM with the following members present: Merlin Dixon, Linda England, Karl McCarty, and Leland Shipley. Doug Birt joined the meeting at 10:40 am. Also in attendance were Eldon Rike, Stan Grebner, and Mark Saylor. The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Shipley. The agenda for the day was read and approved.

            Eldon Rike and Stan Grebner discussed with the board that the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad would pay a lump sum to the county for installing a culvert for the bridge on Chestnut and then would have the county take over maintenance. The Railroad offered a couple of proposals. The Railroad would re-deck four bridges if the county would take over ownership of them. Another proposal was to reconstruct one bridge and having the county take over the other ones “as is”. Eldon and Stan said the bridge on Union is in the worst shape.  The board is going to look into more options.

            Dixon moved, seconded by England to approve Eldon Rike’s employment contract for FY 17/18. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

            McCarty moved, seconded by Dixon to approve transfer of funds from Rural Basic to Secondary Roads. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

            England moved, seconded by McCarty to approve the support agreement with Solutions, Inc. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

            Discussion was held on the road maintenance agreement between the City of Nodaway and Adams County. The board reviewed the agreement and wanted the term “maintenance” more defined.

            McCarty moved, seconded by England to approve the Liquor License LA0000576 for Williamson America Legion Post #719. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

            Discussion was held regarding the pay scale for the dispatchers. The board asked for Sheriff Johannes to provide job descriptions for the dispatchers and then they would review the pay scale.

Board Minutes May 30, 2017

The Adams County Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, at 9:00 AM with the following members present: Merlin Dixon, Linda England, Karl McCarty, Doug Birt, and Leland Shipley. Also in attendance were Stan Grebner, Mark Saylor, Paul Greufe, Paul Hogan, Cory Dorsey, Rich Miller, Sheriff Alan Johannes, Nancy Kempton, and Jen Shires. The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Shipley. The agenda for the day was read and approved.

            Stan Grebner discussed with the board that there has been interest from the community for the trucks that will be replaced in July. The board said they are interested in a sealed bid method to dispose of them. 

            Treasurer Nancy Kempton discussed with the board a new 28E Agreement with the Iowa DOT and Adams County for driver’s license issuance. The board asked to have the 28E agreement looked at by the county attorney and then have it placed back on the agenda for discussion.

            Discussion was held regarding deputy sheriffs and their pay. The Auditor’s office wanted to make sure the deputies were being properly compensated while following the Department of Labor regulations. The deputies are going to start recording all hours they are responsible for while on duty. The deputies will begin to follow the current handbook policy of the 7K exemption with paying overtime after 86 hours in a pay period.

            Discussion was held regarding the dispatchers pay. Sheriff Johannes wants to increase the starting wages for the dispatchers and to put a cap on the top end. Paul Greufe did a salary compensation survey to see what other counties were paying for the same position. The recommendation from Paul based on his survey was to have a range of $14 -$17/hr. Sheriff Johannes would like to compensate employees according to longevity and who also have assumed more duties above the recommended range. The board asked to table the item for another meeting so they could have more time to research the issue.

Discussion was held regarding changing the handbook to allow employees to carry a weapon in the courthouse if they have the proper permits. The Sheriff’s department was not in favor of making the changes. This item was tabled to continue to research as well.

Committee reports were presented by the Supervisors as follows: McCarty – Heartland Alliance, Creston, May 25; Birt– ACCS, Corning, May 25; and England– CHI Hospital Board, Corning, May 25 and CHI Hospital, Corning, May 25.
