Started before he joined the board in 1994, 1st District Tama County Supervisor Larry Vest described the Heartland Insurance Risk Pool as the "best" agreement the county has continued to participate in. With this endorsement and information about the current renewal status from Judy Funk, a Heartland representative, supervisors voted on Monday, June 11, to continue with the insurance coverage. The premium for 2018-19 is listed at $439,705, down from the current annual premium totaling $451,045 or a 2.5 percent reduction. The insurance pool covers wide wide range of areas including workers' compensation, auto and general liability, law enforcement and property. The Heartland Pool is made up of 10 counties formed under a 28e agreement which is defined as a "formal agreement" allowed between separate government entities. The regular June 18 supervisors meeting was changed to June 19 because of tax sale proceedings to take place place on June 18 in the board meeting room. On Monday the supervisors approved: •a tax abatement totaling $2,136 for a mobile home abandoned at the Arrowhead Mobile home court in Toledo. •claims totaling $128,154.
