Winnebago Board to Discuss ATV’s and Taxes

The Winnebago County Board of Supervisors will meet on Tuesday to discuss work on the fence bordering the County Home Farm. The board will discuss options and necessity. This will be followed by Winnebago County Secondary Roads Engineer Scott Meinders discussing the current state of secondary roads in the county.

Kris Oswald, Winnebago County Drainage Clerk will cover the current state of drainage lines in the county. She will also ask the board to approve a resolution calling for drainage taxes to be levied. These will be for districts where the supervisors act as trustees and the county has paid bills for.

With the dissolution of Winnebago-Hancock-Worth Association (WHW), the board must now look to another entity to fill the void. The board will vote on whether to use the services of the North Iowa Area Community Action group. Once approved, the group will start working in areas previously by WHW.

A new state law now allows for ATV’s and off-road utility vehicles to be driven on secondary roads. Previously, each county in Iowa had rules and regulations regarding usage. As a result, the county will now repeal the resolution and go by state law.

The board will also appoint a new Township Clerk in King Township. The previous clerk stepped down which prompted the board to consider an appointment to the post.

The board will meet beginning at 9am in the Supervisors Room of the Winnebago County Courthouse.
