Mahaska County Board of Supervisors Meeting

The Mahaska County Board of Supervisors had their regularly scheduled meeting Monday morning at the Mahaska County Courthouse and bookkeeping was the chief topic discussed with a very busy agenda.

The Board heard from Brad Reiman regarding the health plan renewal for Mahaska County. This discussion lasted nearly 55 minutes before the Board unanimously approved all of the plans for the renewal for the county employees.

The Board next heard a conservation report, which noted that the Eveland Access ground is open and 19 of the 23 lots were taken on the first weekend. The county is also close to acquiring 93 acres of land north of New Sharon, which cost $5,000 from the county.

The Board also approved payroll changes for the Sheriff, Assessor, and the County Attorney’s office.

Supervisor Mike VanderMolen said he would talk with City Manager Mike Schrock to iron out any issues regarding the cost of the new facilities proposed by the Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter. The Board will discuss the specifics and vote on how much to offer at a later date.
