Meeting Minutes
LYON COUNTY AUDITORS OFFICE ROCK RAPIDS, IOWA March 24, 2014
Chairman Randy Bosch convened the adjourned session with Peters, Bosch, Behrens, Koedam and Michael present. Motion carried assumes unanimous vote unless otherwise stated.

The minutes of the March 10, 2014 meeting were reviewed. Motion made by Behrens to approve minutes, seconded by Koedam. Motion carried.

A tobacco permit for Grand Falls Resort and Casino was presented. The permit is valid from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014. Motion by Michael, second by Koedam to approve and have Chairman sign permit. Motion carried.

Mary Sloan with Compass Pointe, Attorney Shayne Mayer, and Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep joined the Board to discuss the possibility of Lyon County supporting a social host ordinance. Ms. Sloan stated the Alliance of Coalitions For Change are an alliance of many different coalitions that have a priority of reducing underage drinking which is where this social ordinance got its start. Attorney Mayer feels the ordinance would be redundant for Lyon County as the County currently uses parameters in the law to prosecute individuals that are involved with activities stated in the ordinance. Vander Stoep stated some of his deputies like the ordinance as it seems to be a clearer picture of who they can charge in situations involving underage drinking. After much discussion, Mayer stated she is not opposed to the ordinance, just the current wording of the one being discussed. In Mayer’s opinion the ordinance is too broad and fears it would be challenged if used. It was decided that at this time the Board would not be signing a social host ordinance as they are confident in the County Attorney to continue prosecuting under the current law. The Board thanked Ms. Sloan for coming.

Lori Van Maanen, Secondary Road Secretary, met with the Board due to Engineer Sievers attending a meeting. Van Maanen introduced Joel Moser as the new sanitarian. Moser started in February with going to meetings and learning the requirements of the position. It was stated that no certifications are needed to be a county sanitarian if time of transfer duties are not included. Moser will be a contract employee doing the septic inspections and overseeing of well closing for a flat monthly fee of $1,000. Motion by Michael to approve and have Chairman sign contract with Joel Moser, second by Koedam. Motion carried.

Van Maanen asked the Board to sign a Certificate of Completion and Final Acceptance of Agreement Work on four emergency repair projects. The projects were: ER-CO60(100)—58-60 a bridge berm repair on Arthur Avenue; ER-CO60(101)—58-60 rip rap repair on bridge on K12; Bridge Berm repair on A26; and Shoulder Slide repair on A26. Motion by Behrens to approve and have Chairman sign Certificates of Completion and Final Acceptance of Agreement Work, second by Peters. Motion carried.

Van Maanen provided a copy of the survey done for the Little Rock shop property purchase. Auditor Smit will do some research to make sure a public hearing does not have to be held regarding the purchasing of property for the shop.

John Van Veldhuizen, Weed Commissioner for the west side of the county, gave a report on the Weed Commissioner meeting he attended in early March. Van Veldhuizen also discussed the monitoring he did last spring/summer. He plans on starting earlier this year in hopes of catching weeds before they bloom so the weeds can be sprayed/mowed before seeding. The Board thanked Mr. Van Veldhuizen for the report.

The Cost Advisory Services contract was brought to the Supervisors for their signature. Motion by Michael to approve and have Chairman sign the multi-year CAS contract, second by Behrens. Motion carried.

The Board has received two resignation letters from the Health Services department. Amy Hartter has resigned from the Homemaker/Home Care Aide Program Manager position. Hartter’s last day of employment will be April 11, 2014. Jolene Korthals has also resigned as a homecare aide. Korthals’s last day of employment will be April 13, 2014.

The Board asked Auditor Smit to ask Kevin Jongerius at DGR to give an estimate on surveying three parcels that the county is thinking of selling. These parcels were all received by the county by tax sale between 1956 and 1970 and are not used by the county currently.
