ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors addressed a number of organizational issues for 2019 at its first formal meeting of the year on Wednesday, Jan. 2.

The board began by appointing Lisa Green-Douglass as chairperson for 2019. Rod Sullivan was appointed vice chairperson.

The Board of Supervisors determined that its formal and informal meetings will continue to be held on Thursdays starting at 9 a.m., except for the second Thursday of each month, when the meetings will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Board meeting location remains typically in the second floor board room of the Johnson County Administration Building, 913 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City, though locations and times are subject to occasional change.

The board designated the county’s official newspapers and established supervisors’ assignments to various community boards and commissions.

“There is a lot to be done in 2019 and our budget should reflect our priorities,” Green-Douglass said. “We are currently finalizing the budget for fiscal year 2020. We are also working closely with our Planning, Development and Sustainability department as they create the unified development ordinance.

“There are a few projects remaining from the strategic plan we adopted two years ago. One of those projects is the access center, also referred to as the Behavioral Health Urgent Care Center (BHUCC). The design phase has begun and we hope to break ground on the project later this spring or early in the summer. Simultaneously, agreements are being drafted with local entities who will be providing care at the Access Center.

“The Board of Supervisors is committed to the people who live here in Johnson County. It’s our goal to continue to use tax dollars to address basic human needs, including housing, transportation and poverty issues.”
