---- — OTTUMWA — The Wapello County Board of Supervisors will discuss withdrawing from the State Historical Society Certified Local Government program at its Tuesday meeting.

In other business, the supervisors will discuss:

• The Iowa Department of Transportation Secondary Road Budget and Secondary Road Construction Program for fiscal year 2015.

• Approval of the county attorney's phone system upgrade.

• Approval of purchasing tandem axle dump trucks for Secondary Roads.

They will also hear a presentation on Skilled Iowa by Linda Rouse of Iowa Workforce.

The meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the boardroom/courtroom at the Wapello County Courthouse.
