Tama County Supervisors Larry Vest, Kendall Jordan and Chairman Dan Anderson met Monday morning with the Tama County Engineer, Lyle Brehm, for a road report. Brehm reported that dust control was started last week, and weather permitting will be completed this week. Brehm said rock hauling was dedicated to this project the last few weeks. Hauling rock will now be aimed for other areas. Chairman Dan Anderson told Brehm the road south of the Stone House (G Avenue) is not in very good shape. The edges of t he road are extremely soft and need building up. This is due to the severe weather during the winter months. Supervisor Kendall Jordan stated he had been asked several times who was going to pay for the bridge damage done a few weeks ago. Jordan asked if the person hitting the bridge had insurance. It was noted by the other supervisors if this were personal property that was damaged the person doing the damage would be responsible. Brehm also told supervisors several lettings for bridge work would be coming up soon. Brehm also reminded supervisors the meeting for the Chambers bridge would be at the Engineer’s office this evening at 6:00 p.m. Brehm says there is interest expressed by some that may be interested in purchasing the bridge. One permit was approved for Poweshiek Water to run new service in Howard Township, Section 24. Claims approved for the past week were $242,034.66.
