At the Aug. 20 supervisors' meeting, Brehm reported is experimenting with Twitter, and has created an account with the name of "Tama County IA Roads" to help get information to the public.
The goal is to include information that may affect people's routines, such as road closures and the progress of construction projects. Brehm says he encourages all those who know how to follow them on Twitter.
Also on Aug. 20 the supervisors:
learned from Brehm everything appears to be on track for the county to take bids on replacing the bridge on 270th Street west of C Avenue. Bids should be coming in October. The current bridge is closed due to deterioration.
