The Board of Supervisors of Carroll County, Iowa met in regular adjourned session in the Boardroom of the Courthouse, in Carroll, Iowa, the County seat of said County on Monday, December 4, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. Central Standard Time pursuant to law, the rules of said Board and to the adjournment with all members present: Neil Bock, District 1; Dean Schettler, District 2; Eugene Meiners, District 3; Marty Danzer, District 4; and Richard Ruggles, District 5.

Motion by Schettler, second by Bock to approve the agenda as presented. On roll call, all voted aye. Motion by Danzer, second by Ruggles to approve the minutes of the November 27, 2017, meeting with a correction. On roll call, all voted aye.

The Board proceeded to discuss funding a road project in the City of Breda. Schettler discussed a conversation he had with Breda Mayor Mike Schwabe. County Engineer Dave Paulson is recommending the County pay approximately $3,000 for materials for improvements to the storm sewer on a road project the City of Breda is completing. Paulson feels the improvements will benefit the roadway with improved drainage. Bock has concerns with this setting a precedent for future City projects and deviating from the 28E Agreement Regarding Maintenance of Farm to Market Extension(s) within the City’s Corporate Limits. Following discussion, motion by Schettler, second by Danzer to cover up to $3,000 of materials for the City of Breda road project. On roll call, Danzer, aye; Meiners, aye; Schettler, aye; Bock, nay; and Ruggles, nay. Motion carried.

The Board reviewed a letter that is scheduled to be mailed to cities regarding voluntary ambulance personnel. The letter states the intent of the County is to not cover the volunteers under the County workers compensation insurance policy and the Supervisors believe the volunteers should be covered under the entity that they receive compensation from. Motion by Bock, second by Ruggles to authorize Chair to sign the letter. On roll call, all voted aye.

Motion by Schettler, second by Ruggles to appoint Will Sauers, Jessie Halbur, and Dawn Ketcham as Assistant Deputy Medical Examiners. On roll call, all voted aye.

The Board discussed a request received from ISAC that encourages counties to support litigation proposed by Crueger Dickinson and Simmons Hanly Conroy to enjoin litigation to hold certain pharmaceutical firms responsible for damages to the public in misrepresenting the safety of using opioids. At this time ISAC is requesting the Board pass a resolution to show support. County Attorney John Werden was in attendance and discussed the request. Following discussion, the Board will place approval of the Resolution on next week’s agenda for consideration.

County Sheriff Ken Pingrey updated the Board on the Jail Committee’s recommendation for the Jail Needs Assessment. Pingrey explained the Committee met with Shive Hattery Architecture & Engineering and Prochaska and Associates. It is the recommendation of the Committee to use Shive Hattery Architecture & Engineering. Following discussion, motion by Bock, second by Meiners to offer the job to Shive Hattery Architecture & Engineering. If they do not accept, the job will be offered to Prochaska and Associates. On roll call, all voted aye. Shive Hattery Architecture & Engineering will charge Carroll County approximately $32,000 to complete a Jail Needs Assessment.
