Maintenance Director Zach Niehaus and Dan Drake with D/R Electric met with the Board to discuss issues with the Courthouse generator. Niehaus explained that Echo Electric inspected the generator and found that the panel can’t maintain voltage in circuit. Niehaus was able to obtain a portable backup generator from the State of Iowa. This generator would need to be manually turned on in the event of a power outage and there is concern about the Communications Center and Jail possibly being without power during this transition. Shive Hattery will take this in to consideration and come back to the Board about possible solutions to the generator issue and look at purchasing a generator that will operate both the new jail and Courthouse. Niehaus explained that the County can rent a generator for approximately $800 per month. This unit could be wired to turn on automatically in the event of a power outage. Following discussion, motion by Schettler, second by Meiners to approve the rental of a generator for the Courthouse. On roll call, all present voted aye.
