Senator Klimesh presents legislative update to county supervisors

Iowa State Senator Mike Klimesh shared a legislative update with the Winneshiek County Board of Supervisors during the board’s regular meeting Monday morning. During the update, the senator talked about several key issues he’s working on, while also answering a couple questions recently discussed by the supervisors.

“We could find nothing in Chapter 137 that would disallow you from utilizing the hospital for public health services,” Klimesh began, referring to the board’s recent conversations on whether to continue funding Winneshiek County Public Health. “You can’t, obviously, mix the two boards together. Their duties are diverse enough, but if you read the code section … you can have a district public health approach, which would allow two or three counties to get together to do public health at the district level. We don’t see anything, to answer the question I’ve been asked, that would not allow you to enter into a 28E with the hospital to provide those services. Other counties are doing this already throughout the state, is our understanding, on a limited basis.”
