Board Minutes April 8, 2019

 

The Adams County Board of Supervisors met on Monday, April 8, 2019 at 9:00 am with the following members present: Merlin Dixon, Doug Birt, Leland Shipley, Scott Akin and Corey Moore. Also in attendance were: Bobbi Maynes, Nancy Barnes, Jamie Stargell, Jan Leonard, Bert Peckham, Travis Malone, Travis Paul, and Bart Knox. The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Shipley. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited and the agenda for the day was read and approved. Akin moved, seconded by Birt to approve the minutes from April 1, 2019. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

 

            Jan Leonard, Mayor of Corning, discussed with the board the need to replace the Hull Street bridge. The Iowa Department of Transportation has offered to start immediately on the start of the project. The DOT will pay 80% of the project with the local authority funding the remaining 20%. Jan also discussed the possibility of using a concrete culvert instead of a bridge and the desire to expand the area to allow a sidewalk for better pedestrian access to the football field and track.  Engineer Travis Malone offered to be the administrator of the project to replace the bridge. The board agreed that he should be the administrator.

 

Dixon moved, seconded by Birt to approve the Recorder’s Quarterly report presented by Recorder Jamie Stargell. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

 

Discussion was held on the County Sanitarian Carl Goodson moving the file cabinet from the old county engineer office to the sewer plant for better access to the files needed for that position. 

 

Discussion was held concerning Doug Birt’s request to rearrange the committees’ representation. Chair Leland Shipley recommended waiting until after the election is official and then the board can reassign committees as needed.

 

            Engineer Travis Malone presented contracts and bonds to be executed that were approved at a previous meeting.

 

            Malone gave the board an update on other bridge projects around the county. There is a bridge on Aspen Avenue north of Hwy 34 that has concerns and will probably need extensive work. Malone also discussed the need to repair a sewer line at the secondary roads shop and asked the board where this expense should be paid from. The board said it was appropriate to pay for it out of the Capital Projects fund 30000. Auditor Bissell asked for amendment dollars from Secondary roads and were there other expected expenses to be included in the amendment. Malone stated the expected costs to be $3000.

 

Birt moved, seconded by Akin to engage K&F LLC to work with DCI to create the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the hotel road intersection. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.
