Tama Co. Board of Supervisors by Joyce Wiese
February 8, 2013
Tama County Engineer Lyle Brehm met with the Tama County Board of Supervisors Monday morning, February 4, 2013 and discussed the method of removing snow or ice on the roads. There has been some complaints to the supervisors. Brehm stated an emergency situation always takes precedent on clearing the roads. Otherwise one way traffic on all roads with hard top roads being first, then rock roads second. Brehm was asked about when blading snow if it was possible to jump over a mile and grade a road and then back to where he was grading. Brehm says they do not do this as it just delays the person on the path being graded. Brehm stated he does not like to favor one person over the other, under normal circumstances. Approximately 18,000 people live in Tama County and Brehm does not feel he can favor one over the other when serving this many people. Brehm says all roads are open at the present time, though several places would be plowed one day and drift shut that night. The canvas of the Drainage District 1 election shows James Mason Jr. 1680 T Avenue, Dysart as the person winning that election. Claims paid for the past week were in the amount of $61,665.41.
