Supervisors learn Pheasant Ridge has a need for more residents

Tama County Supervisors Larry Vest and Kendall Jordan met Monday morning with Supervisor Dan Wilkens absent.

Terry Johnson, Genesis Development chief operating officer, was present to give an update on the operation of Pheasant Ridge Care Facility, the former Tama County Home, located three miles north of Toledo.

Johnson said they currently care for 26 residents. Some are from Marshall County, three from Boone and other areas.

This is a 40-bed facility and needs more occupancy. Johnson said Genesis lost $56,000 last year and is looking for a way to increase the income. He said they are working on this, but it is hard to come up with a solution.

Their goal is to move people out as soon as convenient for the person into apartments or other housing.

Vest reported Highway D65 in the northern part of the county has recently had the blacktopping completed and now working is underway on the roadway shoulders.

The east bound shoulder is now nearly completed. Work on the westbound will follow.

Susan Jones, assistant to the County Engineer presented a permit for T.I.P. Rural Electric Co-op, Brooklyn to do work in Columbia Township. This is installation of 3-phase electrical underground in conduit under 360th Street.

Claims for the past week were approved totaling $113,161.
