Ottumwa Courier

---- — OTTUMWA — The Wapello County Board of Supervisors approved the rental of Wapello County Care Facility cropland at their Tuesday meeting.

Two bids were read for the cropland at the Sept. 24 meeting. The higher bid of $94,530.62 from Jason Rogers was authorized, and the supervisors then referred it to the Wapello County Auditor for correctness of bid.

In other business:

• Two tax suspensions under Iowa code 427.8 were approved. This code allows the board this approval to protect a tax suspension on a case-by-case basis and need to be approved on a year-to-year basis.

• A pay change request for the building inspector of secondary roads was approved.

• A new full-time care aide for public health was acknowledged.
