Plymouth County Board of Supervisors Minutes & Claims — August 21, 2018

Plymouth County Board of Supervisors
August 21, 2018 — Le Mars, Iowa

The Plymouth County Board of Supervisors met in the Annex meeting room on August 21, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.  All members were present.  All votes following are aye unless otherwise indicated.  Board Chairman Don Kass called the meeting to order and the Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Motion by Anderson, seconded by Meis to approve the August 21, 2018 agenda.  Motion Carried.

Motion by Horton, seconded by Loutsch, to approve the minutes of the August 7, 2018 meeting.  Motion Carried.
There was no meeting on August 14, 2018.

Motion by Anderson, seconded by Loutsch, to approve the payroll of 8/10/18 and 8/15/2018 and the claims to be paid on 8/21/18 as presented.     Motion Carried.

A discussion regarding an ordinance to provide legal use of UTVs and/or ATVs on Plymouth County roads for all citizens was discussed.  Several citizens spoke for and against the issue. Two citizens spoke against the use of UTVs and ATVs by any citizens other than people in agriculture. Eight citizens spoke for the use of ATV/UTVs on Plymouth County roads by all citizens with an age limit set by an ordinance. After discussion was held, Chairman Kass directed that the issue could be considered for an action item after January 1, 2019 but would not entertain a set Board agenda item until then.  However it was stated that there are a few minutes of open public forum at each Board meeting for the public.

Del Kellen was present to discuss the issue of the bicycle use on county roads regarding safety and the issue where some bikers ride double wide on the road, run stop signs, do not respond or listen to a horn behind them from a vehicle, do not move over to the shoulder to allow for an agricultural use vehicle or semi with a trailer to pass safely, or do not share the road.  He asked if the County could require licensing of bicycles with a license plate that could be read to report the biker to the Sheriff Department.  The Iowa Code Section 321.234 was read by Chairman Kass regarding bicycles on roadways.  Discussion was held and no action was taken.

Motion by Anderson, seconded by Meis, to approve a permit to Premier Communications to Hungerford Township in Section 6, 7, 8, 31 and Perry Township in Section 1, 12, 13, 24, 25, 36.  Motion Carried.

The Board of Supervisors adjourned the meeting at 11:01 a.m.

Plymouth County Auditor
