Previously there was a request for abatement of taxes for a mobile home in Garwin. The mobile home was uninhabitable and was a nuisance. County Treasurer Michelle Yuska told supervisors the mobile home has now been demolished and is no longer there.
Susan Breuklander has asked for an abatement of taxes in the amount of $518 and this was approved. This will get the property back on the property tax roll.
Treasurer Yuska also told supervisors there were 192 parcels of properties at the tax sale on Monday June 16.
County Engineer Lyle Brehm told supervisors the City of Tama has contacted him on the replacement of a bridge on East Ninth Street in Tama. The old bridge will be removed and a box culvert will replace it.
