Board Minutes May 6, 2019

 

The Adams County Board of Supervisors met on Monday, May 6, 2019 at 9:00 am with the following members present: Merlin Dixon, Doug Birt, Leland Shipley, Bobbi Maynes, and Scott Akin. Also in attendance were: Travis Malone, Kasi Koehler, Beau Hupke, Karl McCarty, Bart Knox, Loren Gerleman and Katrina Ogburn. The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Shipley. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited. The agenda for the day was read and approved. Birt moved, seconded by Akin to approve the minutes from April 29, 2019. All supervisors voted aye. Motion carried.

 

            Engineer Travis Malone, discussed with the board some bridges that were inspected and needed to have a lower weight posted.

 

Loren Germelen with Agriland FS addressed the board over the fuel bid that was recently approved. Germelen asked for an explanation why Agriland FS wasn’t selected as they had the lowest bid. Engineer Malone stated the bids were to be granted to the most qualified bid not just the lowest bid.  He also explained that the Secondary Roads department had concerns with the service they had been provided by Agriland. Secondary Roads was having issues of not getting the slips from the delivery truck and also the fuel they were receiving at the main shop was 33-66% all winter long instead of requested 50-50%.  Because of the fuel blend the Secondary Roads department had issues with the sign truck and a motor grader gelling up several times this past year. In April Agriland FS delivered the 50-50 fuel when the department didn’t need it any longer. Malone said the department spent money on new filters and fuel additives to keep their equipment running and stressed the need to have their equipment available. Germelen asked if these concerns were brought to their attention. Malone said Maintenance Supervisor McCarty and Shop Mechanic Damewood both shared their concerns with the delivery person and reached out to his supervisor. Germelen said the board had the duty of going with the lowest bid to be fiscally responsible. Birt expressed his confidence in the Engineer and the department and that if there is a service problem then the board is going to grant the bid to the company that keeps the department running the most efficiently. Birt also expressed that the county prefers to do business with entities that have a presence in the county and since Agriland FS has two facilities in the county that was the only reason they accepted their bid the past few years.

 

            Katrina Ogburn with Miltner Insurance brought Kasi Koehler with ICAP and Beau Hupke with CRMS to update the board on insurance coverage for the county.

 

            Auditor Bissell presented a letter and a resolution from SIRWA releasing Adams County and the reserved funds held for the purpose of funding Gooseberry Lake.

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.

            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.
