The board approved a reimbursement resolution with the Pilot Grove Savings bank, it was necessary to satisfy IRS requirements for the projects they are doing. A strategic planning meeting was set for September 9th, and the October board meeting was moved to the 25th of the month instead of the 18th, to accomodate the people attending the Iowa Hospital Association convention. The Trustees also approved replacing the roof on the Park Place facility, they are expecting it to cost around $150,000. September 8th a pre bid meeting will be held, then on September 20th a 10 am public hearing will be held followed by the bid receiving and opening.
