TOLEDO – Last week’s supervisors’ meeting went by rather quickly, without any fireworks going off. Chairman Bill Faircloth was absent, so District 1 Supervisor Curt Hilmer once again had the reins. Hilmer stumbled and tumbled a bit when it came to the monotonous particulars of parliamentary procedure, but he amended his unintentional missteps in a mirthful fashion.

Other business

The Tama County engineer reported that the Toledo Deer Creek bridge’s deck will be poured soon. This was to be the final week of 4/10 hour days. A final voucher for the bridge project on B Avenue was approved.

A public hearing for the precinct redistricting was held at 10 a.m. in front of the supervisors. The only public comment came from Richard Arp, a member of the precinct redistricting committee, who said he hadn’t heard any comments about it himself.

The supervisors approved changing this week’s meeting to Tuesday, September 5, due to the Labor Day holiday.

Also approved was a liquor license for the Traveling Tapster.

Claims totaled $145,458.22.
