CHARLES CITY, IA – The Floyd Co Board of Supervisors Workshop meeting on Monday began with standing room only as interested Veterans spilled out into the Auditors office. Dennis Hull began by presenting a petition to the Board and speaking on behalf of the Veterans of Floyd County:
Another Veteran who addressed the Board was former commissioner Ron Munshower, who was concerned about veterans being removed from meetings by law enforcement officers, which he said was something that he had never seen before:
Most of the veterans had little to say but Larry Bordstein said they just want to know what if anything the Supervisors are going to do about it and he voiced the general concensus of all of the veterans in attendance:
Former Supervisor Warren Dunkel was not present Monday but addressed the Supervisors at the regular meeting yesterday, speaking in support of Sanvig:
Dunkel is also a Veteran and made his remarks during the public comment portion of Tuesdays meeting.
Larry Bordstein expressed what seemed to be on the minds of all in attendance at the Monday meeting:
Chairman Roy Schwickerath, speaking on behalf of the Supervisors, said that they take the concerns of the veterans very seriously and their concerns would be brought to an upcoming meeting, but they had to make sure that all of the people that needed to attend could be there, including the county attorney. Dennis Sanvig was contacted by KCHA and had no comment.
