Resolution adopted.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT
HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer
Cathy Nicholas said that one gravel road was
closed due to flooding of the Cedar River, and three
to four gravel roads were closed by flooding of the
Wapsipinicon River. Cedar Wapsi Road was reduced
to one lane near the Wapsi. She said that she plans
to use electronic bidding for local projects, like
the Department of Transportation does for state
projects. Assistant County Attorney Mike Treinen
said that the law is silent on the use of electronic
bidding, but it is used by the Iowa DOT and the Iowa
Board of Regents. Trelka asked if a policy decision
is needed. Treinen said only if the Board opposes
its usage. Little said that the proposal should have
been shared with the Board before it went to legal
counsel and other entities. White said he had
concerns about doing things online. Little asked
Nicholas to provide more information to the Board.
Health Department Director Nafissa Cisse
Egbuonye told the Board about non-COVID related
health issues. She said the following: Black Hawk
County was rated 61st of 99 counties for health
outcomes (dropping from 58th the previous year),
31% of residents are obese, 19% of children live in
poverty, and 11% of residents have limited access
to healthy foods. In 2019 the Community Health
Assessment was completed in partnership with
health care systems, community organizations, and
local foundations.
After analyzing the data, the Board of Health
identified three priority areas: improving health
behaviors, mental health and systems thinking. As
part of improving health behaviors, all the partners
agree to promote heathy eating across the county.
This aligns with state and national priorities:
Decrease the percentage of Iowans who are food
insecure, increase the percent of adults who eat
fruits and vegetables, promote health, and reduce
chronic disease risk through the consumption of
healthy diets and achievement and maintenance of
healthy body weights, and help people recognize
and make healthy food and beverage choices.
Partnerships with stakeholders is essential in
completing the Community Health Assessment
and continues to be the core of our strategy in
addressing the social determinants of health in
our county. A recent partnership to identify and

eliminate high blood pressure and high cholesterol
disparity is a great example of the continued
collaboration with healthcare systems in our
county.
BHCHD received an $85,000 grant to provide
technical assistance to four clinics/healthcare
systems. The project works to identify populations
at risk of high blood pressure and high cholesterol,
and work to eliminate blood pressure/cholesterol
health disparities in clinic setting. Initial data pull
includes visit dates between January-March 2021.
Preliminary data shows that risk of high blood
pressure and high cholesterol increases with age.
27% of patients have elevated or high cholesterol.
Higher risk includes people ages 46-63, people
who identified as Black/African American, Middle
Eastern, North African, Arab, American Indian/
Alaska Native, and those who identify with more
than one race. People in zip code 50613 had higher
cholesterol than other zip codes. 71.5% have
elevated blood pressure, with a concentration in
people ages 45-66. Men generally had higher blood
pressure than women. People in zip code 50703
and rural zip codes had higher blood pressure than
other zip codes.
In addition to health care partnerships, BHC
Public Health also partners with School Districts
to implement several projects focusing on child
and adolescent health, nutrition, and healthy
eating education. In addition to the class-based
nutrition education, the Black Hawk County Health
Department collaborates with Waterloo Community
Schools and numerous collaborating organizations
to offer the Farm to School Program. According to
a recent USDA report, people who receive food
assistance face more challenges to a healthy
diet, such as affording the cost of healthy foods,
not having transportation to a grocery store, and
not knowing how to cook healthy meals. Farm
to School Program provides 10 gardens in the
school district as an opportunity for hands on
learning, encouraging healthy foods. Introducing
new foods to kids, and increasing opportunities
to try vegetables. Kids learn how to plant, harvest,
cook and eat new foods, healthy foods. They have
created culturally appropriate gardens – because
food grown at school garden should reflect foods
that families eat. At harvest time excess produce
is put out for school families to pick up or donated
to the Food Bank.
Egbuonye said her department is contracting
with the Iowa Department of Public Health for a
full-time disease prevention specialist through the
end of 2025. The specialist will expand the scope
of investigations for sexually transmitted diseases.

Moved by White, seconded by Trelka to receive and
place on file proof of publication of notice of public

Moved by White, seconded by Schwartz to waive
the first reading. Motion carried.
Seth Hyberger of Planning and Zoning said the
Planning and Zoning Commission voted 4-1 to
deny the request, even though the land has a low
Land Evaluation and Site Assessment score and
hasn’t been farmed for at least 35 years. He said
the only reason the commission gave for opposing
the request is that the Phillips were doing it for
the money. An attorney for the Phillips’s said that
building a house is the highest and best use of
the property, and that the law is clear that any
opposition to the request must rest on a clear and
rational basis. He said Commissioner Debi Nagle
was asked why she was opposed, and she said that
a neighbor offered to buy the property as is. This
would force the owners to accept a low price for
low value land rather than allowing improvement
that would increase the land’s value.
Wanda Schares said that she is the neighbor who
offered to buy the property, and her objection to the
rezoning was based on the fact that a house would
be built in front of her house, and that development
of the area could lead to opposition to her family’s
farm operation, with its noise and smells. The
Schares had rented the parcel for pastureland in
the past, and Leisa Phillips said that the Schares’s
had often asked to buy the property in the past, but
when asked to make an offer, they did not, until the
Phillips’s listed the property. Ms. Schares said that
they were now offering $15,000 an acre, which
the Phillips’s have refused. Darrel Phillips said
that there was a concern that the parcel would be
subdivided so that several houses could be built
there, but that couldn’t be done. Hyberger said it
would require a different rezoning.

DISCUSSION – County Preparedness and Possible
Updates for COVID-19. Dr. Egbuonye said that
numbers continue to climb and that over the
weekend through today there were 136 positive
cases in the county. Schwartz said given the CDC
guidance on indoor mask wearing, he supports
a modified version of the prior county policy. He
asked if the Board has an appetite for this. Little
said it would be hard to tell the public to wear
masks again. Laylin said that signs could be posted
to encourage mask wearing. Schwartz said masks
don’t just protect the wearers, but also those
around them. He said that now that the Pfizer
vaccine has been fully approved for use, it’s time
to start thinking about making it a requirement for
employment. Egbuonye said that such a decision
would need to involve the Human Resources
department.
