             RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE WARRANTY DEED

Motion by Ledvina, Seconded by Vest that the following Resolution to authorize a warranty
deed to convey a county property to Allan Richards be approved:

                               RESOLUTION 12-2-2003B

BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Supervisors of Tama County, Iowa:

WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors of Tama County, Iowa, has heretofore authorized the
Chairman of the Board of Supervisors and the Tama County Auditor to execute a Warranty
Deed on behalf of Tama County, Iowa, and conveying unto Allan Richards all the right, title
and interest of Tama County, Iowa, in and to:

The East One Third (1/3) of Lot Two (2) and the East One foot (E. 1 ft.) of the West Half
(W 1/2) of the East Two-thirds (E 2/3) of Lot Two (2), Block Seven (7), of Toledo, Iowa.
WHEREAS, the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors and Tama County Auditor have now
executed said Warranty Deed as heretofore set forth and pursuant to the direction of the
Board of Supervisors of Tama County, Iowa, as contained in Resolution 11-18-2003B,
dated the 18th day of November, 2003, and

WHEREAS, said aforedescribed and duly executed Warranty Deed is now presented to the
Board of Supervisors of Tama County, Iowa, for its examination and approval.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the aforedescribed duly executed Warranty
Deed is hereby approved by the Board of Supervisors of Tama County, Iowa, both as to

A roll call was taken and the following Board members voted “aye”: Keith Sash, Chairman;
Larry Vest; and Jim Ledvina, and none of the members voted “nay.” The vote being called
and the results recorded by the Auditor, the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors declared
the resolution duly adopted.

At 10:00 a.m., the Board met with Dennis Zeman and other area residents near section 13 of
Otter Creek Township where a hog confinement facility is to be constructed by Kenny
Mayo, Toledo. Area residents were concerned that the hog operation would be detrimental
to property values and quality of life. The Board noted that the County Sanitarian received a
letter from the Iowa Dept. of Natural Resources on October 25 th referring to the approval of
a manure management plan for the hog operation.

Chairman Sash noted that Iowa statute 455B specifically prohibits a local government
decision to allow or disallow animal confinement operations that meet the State's MATRIX
guidelines. The hog operation in question is below the animal unit threshold for a public
hearing on construction. The operation will be required to file an annual manure
management plan with the State.

Placement of an animal confinement facility must meet distance requirements specified in
the MATRIX rules. Tama County does not limit agricultural operations on agricultural land
in its zoning ordinance. The Board of Supervisors passed a construction resolution on
January 7, 2003, to enable the County to recommend to the Iowa Dept. of Natural Resources
an approval or disapproval of a construction permit for large animal confinement operations.
The hog operation in question was not large enough for the County to submit its approval or
disapproval.

Motion by Vest, Seconded by Ledvina to approve the claims for payment as presented on
the Auditor’s Claim Register. All Voted Aye. Motion Carried.

Chairman Sash adjourned the meeting at 11:00 a.m.
