Ginger Walker, Cherokee County Conservation Director, gave a project update to the Cherokee County Board of Supervisors on three stick-built cabins that are currently being constructed at Martin Access.
Walker told the Board that the electric transformers were installed by Iowa Lakes Electric and she would like to make the payment of installation of the transformers from the monies that were set aside from the County Betterment Funds.
Also, Walker told the Board about the installment of new waterlines at the site by Iowa Lakes Regional Water.
She also informed the Board that groundbreaking and the pouring of the concrete foundations would be this week.
Cherokee County Engineer Dave Shanahan requested a single underground permit for Martin Access and discussed general business with the Board.
Lisa Langlitz, Cherokee County Community Services Director, asked for the Board's approval on an accreditation application for running her case management program.
Other business for the Board was the approval of a list of two outstanding checks to be voided. Both were magazine subscriptions that total $125.65.
The Board also appointed Steve Curtis to the Cherokee County Civil Service Commission. The Board had previously nominated Lisa Woltman to the three-person commission, but she declined the nomination due to a personal conflict.
The commission is now made up of Brenda Perrin, Jason Vanvactor and Steve Curtis. The commission is scheduled to meet today at 2 p.m. in the lower level of the Cherokee County Courthouse.
