CONSENT AGENDA ENDS
Moved by White, seconded by Trelka to proclaim
September as National Voter Registration Month,
and September 22 as National Voter Registration
Day.
Moved by Little, seconded by White to direct the
County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing
to be held at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, September
29, 2020 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk
County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo,
Iowa on the proposed three year lease agreements
(November 1, 2020 – October 31, 2023) for the
use of one or more County owned (flood damaged)
vacant lots. Motion carried.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Trelka to receive and
place on file the ACTUARIAL OPINION CERTIFICATE
for FY20 of the Black Hawk County Insurance Health
Care Plan as submitted by Insurance Strategies
Consulting, LLC and to issue checks for a $110
filing fee and $975 for the 509A Study for plan
ending June 30, 2020. Motion carried.
Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by
Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to opt out of the
presidential directive to defer the payment of
employee social security tax.
Schwartz said that he supports the opt-out because
the employees would have to pay the taxes later
and the county may be liable for repaying for
anyone who leaves county employment in the
meantime. County Auditor Grant Veeder said the
county’s outside auditors advise opting out, and
the county’s software can’t perform the task. Trelka
said that the Board strives to take care of county

employees, and it should protect them from these
complications.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Trelka, White, Schwartz.
NAYS: None.
Resolution adopted.
Moved by Little, seconded by White that the
APPOINTMENT of Peter Beck as a representative
for the Black Hawk County Board of Adjustments

the expiration date of November, 1, 2024. Motion
carried.
White moved the following resolution seconded by
Laylin.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to direct the Chair to
sign the Vote Safe Iowa Initiative Grant Agreement
between Black Hawk County and the Iowa
Secretary of State to approve a grant award to the
county of $47,800 for the purpose of preventing,
preparing for, and responding to coronavirus for the
November 3, 2020 General Election.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Trelka, White, Schwartz.
NAYS: None.
Resolution adopted.
At Nine-twelve o’clock (9:12) a.m., a public hearing
was held as provided by law in Board Room 201
of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th
Street, Waterloo, Iowa at which time all interested
persons could appear to file objections on the
purchase of one (1) Motor Grader for the Black
Hawk County Engineer’s Department.
Moved by Little, seconded by White to receive and
place on file proof of publication of notice of public
hearing. Motion carried.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Little to close the
hearing after oral/written comments are received.
Motion carried.
At nine-twelve (9:12) a.m. the Chair announced the
time had arrived in accordance with prior action and
as advertised, for the receiving and opening of bids
for the proposed purchase of one (1) Motor Grader
for the Black Hawk County Engineer’s Department.
The Board of Supervisors examined proof of
publication of notice to bidders and determined
that said notice had been published in the Waterloo
Courier on August 20, 2020 in accordance with the
requirements of the Code of Iowa. The Engineer’s
estimate for the equipment was $344,000.
The Chair announced the following sealed bids
were all received by three o’clock (3:00) p.m.
Friday September 4, 2020, as stated in the Notice
to Bidders. The time of announcement being ninethirteen (9:13) a.m., the following bids were opened
and read:
NAME CITY
AMOUNT
Altorfer, Inc. Cedar Rapids, IA
$364,900.00
Murphy Tractor (1) Waterloo, IA
$355,000.00
Murphy Tractor (2) Waterloo, IA
$344,000.00
Little asked why Murphy Tractor submitted more
than one bid. Nicholas said they have two John
Deere motor graders that both fit the specifications.
Moved by Little, seconded by White that the Board
of Supervisors receive and place on file the bids for
the purchase of one (1) Motor Grader to allow time
to review said bids as recommended by Catherine
Nicholas, County Engineer.
DISCUSSION/POSSIBLE BOARD ACTION – To
discuss county preparedness for COVID-19. Health
Department Director Nafissa Cisse Egbuonye said
the county had 177 new cases over the holiday
weekend. Her department continues to do education
throughout the county, and she has been told by the
rural communities that the best way to reach their
residents is through social media. She has also
used radio and billboards. The age group with the
highest rate of infection is now 18- to 40-year-olds.
She is reaching the business community through
Cary Darrah at Grow Cedar Valley. The supervisors
said they are hearing a lot of complaints from bar
owners forced to close down, and said that the
closures stem from a spike in infections among
UNI students, who don’t frequent many of the bars
affected. Cisse Egbuonye said that her department
can help the bar owners understand how the state
proclamation affects their individual businesses, but
she can’t get them out of complying with the state
proclamation. Laylin said that the smaller cities may
benefit from in-person presentations. She said the
supervisors have seen a lot of confusion in emails
received over the weekend. Cisse Egbuonye said
she has presented in Hudson and La Porte City and
is willing to do so elsewhere as well. Trelka said that
more education is needed, because everything is
politicized now and he doesn’t want the Board to be
as distrusted as other levels of government. White
said that many veterans depend on their local posts
for their social life, and being unable to visit them
can result in physical and mental health difficulties.
Cisse Egbuonye said she understands that there is
a serious mental health aspect, and she is open to
meeting with them.
Schwartz asked what the top two things are that
should be included in messages to the public. Cisse
Egbuonye said to stress the importance of masking
to prevent transmission, to constantly wash
hands, and to get immunizations. County Auditor
Grant Veeder asked if the Health Department
would be providing flu vaccinations this year for
county employees. Little said that since county
health insurance covers the cost, employees
should make their own arrangements. The other
supervisors agreed, and Human Resources Director
Debi Bunger said that she would inform county
employees.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE
BOARD. White spoke of the Vietnam Vigil to be held
September 11 to 13, which will also commemorate
the tragedy on 9/11/01.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
Chris Schwartz, Chair, Board of Supervisors
Grant Veeder, County Auditor
