Moved by Peterson, seconded by Magnusson to adopt the following Resolution:

 

A RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING A FIVE DOLLAR

COUNTY ENFORCEMENT SURCHARGE

 

WHEREAS, counties enforce the criminal laws passed by the State of Iowa, provide the county attorneys who prosecute criminals, and even provide the courtrooms where the criminal cases are tried, but do not receive any of the criminal fine money, which all goes to the State of Iowa; and

 

WHEREAS, in an attempt to begin to address this inequity the 2004 Iowa Legislature passed House File 2569, which provides that if a court imposes a fine or forfeiture for any simple misdemeanor punishable as a scheduled violation pursuant to a citation issued by the sheriff, the court shall assess a five dollar county enforcement surcharge for each applicable violation, with the surcharge going to the county general fund of the county where the citation was issued; and

 

WHEREAS, section 9 of House File 2569 requires that for this county enforcement surcharge to go into effect in a given county, the board of supervisors must adopt an enacting resolution;

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD SUPERVISORS OF WEBSTER COUNTY that the Board adopts a five dollar county enforcement surcharge pursuant to House File 2569, with the surcharge to be assessed as of July 1, 2004.

 

PASSED AND APPROVED this 29th day of June, 2004.

 

S/Phil Condon

Chair, Board of Supervisors

 

ATTEST:

 

S/Carol Messerly

County Auditor

 

Motion carried unanimously.           

 

Moved by Gill, seconded by Nolting to adopt the following Resolution:

 

RESOLUTION

 

WHEREAS, emergencies and disasters transcend jurisdictional boundaries, making intergovernmental coordination essential in successful emergency response efforts; and

 

WHEREAS, there will inevitably be emergencies which require immediate access to outside resources due to the fact that few individual governments have all of the resources they may need in every type of emergency; and

 

WHEREAS, Senate File 2124, approved by the Second Session of the 79th General Assembly in 2002, creates Iowa Code section 29C.22, the Statewide Mutual Aid Compact; and

 

WHEREAS, the Statewide Mutual Aid compact allows participating counties, cities and other political subdivisions to provide in advance for mutual assistance in managing any emergency or disaster;

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD SUPERVISORS OF WEBSTER COUNTY that in order to maximize the prompt, full and effective use of resources of all participating governments in the event of an emergency or disaster, Webster County hereby adopts the Statewide Mutual Aid Compact which is attached hereto and incorporated by reference.
