The Carroll County Board of Supervisors at Monday’s meeting went into closed session per Iowa Code 21.5(j) “To discuss the purchase or sale of particular real estate only where premature disclosure could be reasonably expected to increase the price the government body would have to pay for that property or reduce the price the government body would receive for that property.”
Out of closed session, Gary Rupiper and Don Gerken were awarded to be the auctioneers for the sale of the County Farm. More information will be released on time and date of the auction in the near future.
The board then approved two utility permits for Windstream located at Sections 25 and 26 Falcon Avenue, Washington Township and Center and Section 8, 235th Street, Roselle Township. The board voted against Windstream’s new public utility poles in the public utility right of way. The board is not against rural citizens receiving faster Internet, but in my opinion there were not enough facts and information provided to move forward at this time.
Elderbridge presented its fiscal-year 2021 funding request of $14,538. There was no action taken, and the request will be discussed during the upcoming budget process.
The board then agreed to appoint Jean Ludwig to represent the supervisors on the Compensation Board, which recommends county officials’ salaries.
Final item on our agenda was a manure-management update for D&D Klocke, Section 22, Eden Township.
Feel free to reach out to your supervisors with any questions.
