OTTUMWA — The hiring of a new administrator for American Gothic House Center in Eldon is official after approval last night by the Wapello County Board of Supervisors. Sarah Camp was hired Dec. 1 and is already working at the site, said Supervisor Steve Siegel. Camp arrives from Iowa City where she spent the last few years at the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History, Siegel said. The full-time position carries a starting salary of $36,000 per year.

Supervisors also certified the canvass of Wapello County votes in the Dec. 6 special election for the Indian Hills Community College bond referendum. The official vote count for Wapello County remained the same as preliminary numbers, 794 in favor and 495 against.

Approval of the official count for all counties in the IHCC service area will take place lat! er this month.

In other business, the board approved the cancellation of several checks issued in 2015 which have not yet been cashed. Supervisor Jerry Parker expressed concern that one of the checks, in the amount of $190.01, was to the City of Kirkville from the Secondary Road Fund.

The check in question is dated March 6,2015. "If they haven’t cashed that, it’s probably lost," Parker admitted.

Nevertheless, "It’s due them," he said.

County Auditor Kelly Spurgeon confirmed that letters were sent to every recipient on the list of uncashed checks and that none had responded. Parker told the board he would contact the Kirkville mayor about the money.
