Charles City, Iowa – The Floyd County Supervisors met for a regular meeting yesterday morning to discuss amending the fiscal year budget.
The purchase of the two properties for the law enforcement center and the unexpected flooding earlier this year is exhausting the Department 51 account. Supervisor Linda Tjaden says they need to put more money in the account to fund the ongoing project with the law enforcement center.
The supervisors set September 25th as the date to amend the budget. Right now, they are looking at dumping 500 thousand dollars back into the account.
The Supervisors also approved closing a detour in the middle of September. The Iowa Department of Transportation has asked Floyd County to detour traffic onto county roads due to railroad repairs on Highway 18 on the east side of Charles City.
County Engineer Dusty Roland says it’s typical for a project like this to take that long.
