The Guthrie County Board of Supervisors met in regular session Tuesday.
The meeting began with the Board approving the Guthrie County Conservation Board’s annual report. Next, the Board approved diverting its funding to Midwest Partnership that goes towards its involvement in Western Iowa Advantage to the Greater Des Moines Partnership. Midwest Partnership Director Sarah Gomez said since the economic development corporation no longer covers Audubon and Greene counties that it is better positioned to join Greater Des Moines, and at a cheaper rate.
The Board also received an update from Public and Environmental Health Director Jotham Arber and intern Rachel Rumelhart. They said that having this year’s public health fair at Panorama Days was a success, with 300 attendees. They hope to hold the fair during Stuart’s sesquicentennial next year. Finally, the Board approved the quarterly Veterans Affairs Commission report, and payroll change notices from the Secondary Roads Department and Sheriff’s Office.
