Board of Supervisors Minutes
November 28, 2016

The Tama County Board of Supervisors met at 9:30 a.m. November 28, 2016.  Present:  1st District Supervisor, Larry Vest; 2nd District Supervisor, Kendall Jordan and 3rd District Supervisor, Dan Anderson.

Motion by Anderson, seconded by Vest to approve the minutes of the November 21st regular meeting.   All voted aye.  Motion carried. 

The Board met with Lyle Brehm, Tama County Engineer, to get a road projects report.

The Board has received a letter notifying them that the Meskwaki Tribe would like to put some additional land they own into Trust.  The Board is against this as this takes the land off of the tax rolls.  The land also is not contiguous to land already in the trust, which the Board thinks is a requirement to get into the trust.  They would like to pursue some legal advice on this matter.  Motion by Vest, seconded by Anderson to hire attorney Carlton Salmons, Des Moines, to look into this matter and advise them.  All voted aye.  Motion carried. 

Motion by Anderson, seconded by Vest to approve the claims for payment as presented.  All voted aye.  Motion carried.

Chairman Jordan adjourned the meeting at 10:10 a.m.
