January 27, 2012
Tama County Supervisors Larry Vest, Dan Wilkens and Kendall Jordan met Monday morning, January 23, 2012, with Terry Johnson, from Pheasant Ridge Care Center. Johnson was there to request some things to be done to the Old County Home building, now run be Johnson. Johnson says the call system for the residents and office is out of order and needs work done or replacement. He had two bids so far on the work. Johnson also stated the cement around the loading dock was cracking up and needed something done to this. The skylights in the NorthWing leaks and needs probably new wood around the frames. One of the air conditioners was recharged last spring. Maintenance director Dirk Henle says one has a leak and will need recharging. The walls and floor between the showers and the laundry room and personal care room need work. The floor was damaged sometime back when the shower walls were seeping through. The floor will need to be replaced. A light outside the building was damaged from the wind storm in July and has never been repaired. Henle will look into the things needing to be done and get back to the supervisors on costs. Johnson said it was getting harder and harder to keep a RCF open due to all the regulations that continue to be in place. Johnson stated he had notified the Departmen of Inspection and Appeals of some of the requirements now outdated and would like to see them reviewed. A Public Hearing was held at 10:00 a.m. to amend County Ordinance IV-5 Uniform Rural Addressing System of Tama County. These changes are to update the information on the 911 system. There was no one present for the hearing. Therefore it was approved and the second and third readings were waived. Three persons were reappointed to the Tama CountyPioneer Cemetery Association. Frank Adair, Toledo, David Currell, Dysart and Dean Fisher, Garwin, were all reappointed. Their term will expire December 31, 2014. The recommendation was made by Joyce Wiese, Chairman of the Tama County Pioneer Cemetery Association. In other business the Sheriff’s, Auditor’s and Treasurer’s quarterly reports were read and approved. The canvas of Drainage District No. 1 was held at 11:00 a.m. with Robert Steffany the only candidate voted for. There was three votes. Claims approved for the past week came to $281,436.25. The next meeting will be Monday, January 30, 2012.
