A motion was made to approve the consent agenda as presented including Minutes from the Executive Board Meeting - November, 2016 and Summary List of Bills from February by Jerry Joerger and second by Deb Larsen. All members present voting aye, motion carried.
The financial reports were reviewed and discussed. After discussion, a motion was made by Jerry Dunlay seconded by Deb Larsen to approve the financial reports. All members present voting aye, motion carried.
Discussion was held on the policy for taking sharps. A motion by Deb Larsen second by Cindy Lantow to accept the following policy. All members present voting aye, motion carried. POLICY: FMC Landfill is changing their policy on accepting sharps. The sharps being disposed of at the RCC will need to
come in a red biohazard sharps container. The FMC Landfill will have these containers for sale to residents that need to bring their needles and injection devices to the RCC for proper disposal. We realize that it will take some time to change over to these containers, so in the interim we will accept sharps the way we have been until March of 2018. Questions can be addressed the Floyd Mitchell Chickasaw Landfill office staff at 877-982-4288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Discussion was held on searching for a new auditor for the landfill. Lori will be sending out RFP's to several audit firms. More discussion will be held on this at future meetings.
Smith Ag has been hauling Leachate as we need to get the lagoon empty and this time of year we are unable to spray on the landfill. Discussion was held on our tanker, truck and van body trailer and a motion was made by Deb Larsen second by Jerry Dunlay to advertise these for sale. All members present voting aye, motion carried.
The Mitchell County Conservation person would like to take training to become certified for RCC and would be able to accept RCC things. The Landfill will supply the supplies. It is the consensus of the board to allow this.
Plans and specs were reviewed for the back shed. They need to be in more detail. Joel and a couple of the board members will meet with the contractor to get better specs.
Some discussion on employee health insurance options. More discussion will be held in April.
A motion was made by Jerry Joerger second by Jerry Dunlay to use advertising dollars to give $1,000.00 each to New Hampton and Charles City as a sponsor for RAGBRI. All members present voting aye, motion carried.
The employees updated us on their departments. All is going well!
