Supervisors set public hearing to vacate road

Friday, July 1, 2011

The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved resolutions that publicly announce the proposal to vacate and sell a parcel of a county road.

A section of G Avenue near Iowa Highway 3 was vacated when the road was redesigned for use near the Little Sioux Ethanol Plant.

The Board set July 19 at 10 a.m. at the Cherokee County Courthouse for a public hearing on the proposal.

In other business at Tuesday's Board meeting was a request for funds from Ashley Christiansen and Melony Storm for the Second Annual Substance abuse Recovery Walk that will be held in Spencer on Sept. 14. The Board approved $500 to help with their efforts in organizing the event.

Cherokee County Treasurer Hedgie Brandt requested additional wage increase for two members of her office staff who recently were assigned additional duties. The Board approved an additional 50 cents per hour for Misty Daum and 55 cents per hour for Jackie Dierenfield.

Cherokee County Human Resources Director Kristi Petersen presented the Board with the Iowa Municipality Worker Compensation site visit response. In that response the recommendation of having a more diverse County Workers Safety Board, with the hope of including more county workers and not just department heads.

The Board also approved to appropriate the 2011/2012 budget expenditures and would allow 100 percent of the budget to be authorized to county departments for the beginning of the next fiscal year beginning on July 1.

The Board then approved two fireworks permits, one permit for Paul Burch of Cherokee and one permit for Harold Glover of Meriden.

The final bit of business for the Board was a discussion on how to continue with a photo log of county-owned property for insurance purposes. Supervisor Dean Schmidt recommended that an inexpensive digital camera be purchased and be passed on to each county department to use one at a time to document county property.

There will be no Supervisors meeting held on July 5. The next meeting will be on July 12 at 9 a.m.
