The Dallas County Board of Supervisors convened Tuesday morning in regular session.
The meeting began with a moment of silence to remember Assistant County Attorney Sean Wieser, who passed away recently at the age of 48 and had worked for the County for 19 years. In open forum, County Treasurer Mitch Hambleton discussed the pending Department of Transportation driver’s license station, indicating the Supervisors may be presented a few 28E agreements to possibly use the staff and location of the current station in Adel for a few months. The first action item on the agenda was the approval of the final pay application of $5,049.42 from All Makes for the furnishings at the Dallas County Courthouse.
Next, Jerry Purdy with the Farnsworth Group gave a brief update on the progress of the new law enforcement center, pointing out that the roof was scheduled to be placed on the jail pod section that day. The Board then approved the 20th pay application for the project, which was to four different contractors in the amount of $357,068.04. Following that, the Supervisors received a presentation from Dallas County ISU Extension and Outreach regarding the programs offered and how they fit into the growing County. Finally, the Board gave direction to get appraisals for six of the seven vacated Secondary Roads and Conservation Department buildings to potentially be sold.
