Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Thurs., Sept. 26, 197-1 This was the scene in Center Point early Thursday as firemen played water on the smouldering ruins of a shed owned by Osmen Salam of Cedar Rapids. A nearby garage and apartment also were heavily damaged. Johnson Supervisors Okay Mobile IOWA CITY The Johnson county board of supervisors will locale a mobile kitchen at the Close mansion. The facili- ty will consolidate cooking facilities for thu county's high- ly successful congregate meals program. The board accepted a low bid of for renovation work at the mansion, a 100- year-old building that former- ly housed a number of county facilities.. A further cost estimate on total repairs for the mansion has been ordered. An ap- praisal of the building will be made by Roland Smith Real- tors. The appraisal motion car- ried by the single vote of Supervisor Chairman Richard Band. Supervisor Robert Burns abstained, saying that because he is a Realtor, voting on an issue involving a Realtor, it could be a conflict of interest. Supervisor Lorada Cilek also abstained on grounds her son works for Roland Smith Realtors. The question remains whether a previous appraisal of the structure exists. Bartel claims he saw such an ap- praisal. Wednesday. Bartel alleged a number of other doc- uments are in a file cabinet of Adminislrative Assistant John Amidon. Bartel contends that be- cause the documents bear the county auditor's stamp, Ihe'y should be in the auditor's possession. Supervisor Burns suggested "seeing that the auditor and the administrative assistant sec each other every day, a simple verbal request should be sufficient." In other business, the board approved a motion lo seek a special attorney in the Iowa Data Processing, Inc., suit. The board contends County Auditor Dolores Rogers ex- ceeded her authyrily when she approved voter registration data processing by Iowa Data Processing, Cedar Rapids. The board's position is that a bidding procedure should have been followed. It wants an outside attorney because a conflict of .interest could arise if the county allcrncy is called upon to pnisccule the county auditor. fa I yourselfJ fe 1 8a !t D A.M. lo 5 P.M.
