Public Hearing was held on the 2003-2004 Community Development Block Grant project with Rabiner’s Treatment Center.  Steve Hoesel with MIDAS and Brad Klug, Director of Rabiner Treatment Center reported on the funding and progress of the new cottages and counseling center.  The project has pretty much stayed on schedule nearly completing the Community Development Block Grant funding.  Rabiner Treatment Center currently has approximately 125 employees.  Further it is estimated that when school starts this fall approximately 100 clients will be in the programs with 90 in residential treatment; and within the next 12 months they are expecting the numbers to increase between 300 to 400.  The primary focus is treatment of the regional area and in Iowa, but in the near future they will be developing a website and anticipate reaching out of state as well.  An open house is being scheduled for September 15, 2004 and Brad encourages the Supervisors and community to view the facility.  No further comments were heard.
