Iowa County Board Supervisors approve upgrades for law enforcement center
The Iowa County Board of Supervisors gave approval to some safety features at the new law enforcement center that were requested by Sheriff Steve Michek.
Kraemer Brothers, the general contractor, provided a quote from architect firm Potter Lawson, Inc. that will add $34,576.00 to the price. The Sheriff's request is to reduce the scope of bullet resistant drywall and provide secure ceiling access panels where needed.
The quote for the project incudes drywall, keyed panel, two sets of screw-on panel and some key work.
Supervisors on the Jail Building Committee reinforced the need for the change for safety reasons. The board unanimously approve the change.
NURSING HOME STUDY
The board approved funding in the amount of $50,000 for the newly formed committee to study county participation in nursing home care. Funds will be used to obtain firm costs on building a new nursing care facility and will also be used to send a questionnaire to county residents to obtain opinions on a new nursing care facility.
The $50,000 was approved via resolution and came from the capital outlay account.
In a matter related to the present nursing home at Bloomfield Manor the board approved language that will spell out duties for part-time hospitality service aides. The plan is to create four 24 hour per week positions with duties to assist with greeting and directing visitors, distributing ice and water, accompany residents to dining rooms and other activities which are scheduled, assist with set-up for activities, assist residents with food prep, laundry assistance, and general daily needs of residents.
