County Engineer Lyle Brehm presented plans for approval for two bridge replacements. One will be in Grant township, section 14 and the other in Clark township, section 26. Bids will be let in June of this year. The bridge in Clark township is now closed to traffic and the bridge in Grant township has a weight limit on it. Work date for the two bridges has not yet been set. Brehm says the county road crew has been doing some patching in different places this past week. They also have a crew working on the gas pump at the Tama County Shop. Susan Jones gave a report on a change in the Health Insurance plan. Due to a mandate, coverage for acupressure and acupuncture by chiropractors has been changed. There was a maximum of $15.00 per visit and now has been increased to as high as $78.00. Most likely there will be other changes as the new health laws go in place. A utility permit request was approved for Windstream to do work at 2702 Highway E43. Claims approved for payment for the past week came to $346,592.38. The next meeting will be April 7th, 9:30 a. m. at the Supervisors room in the Administration room.
