IOWA CITY — - The Johnson county board of supervisors Wednesday voted unarniously to “table” an action seeking a declaratory judgment from district court on the legality of a contract between the county auditor and a data processing firm. Previously, the board instructed County Atty. Carl Goetz to ask for a legal opinion regarding a contract the auditor, Delores Rogers, has with Iowa Data Processing, Inc., of Cedar Rapids. Wednesday, Goetz requested a clarification suggesting that Data Processing be named as a co-defendant in any legal suit. Mrs. Rogers immediately retorted “Here we go again... She said, “I think Carl is off the mark, dragging Iowa Data into this.” The supervisors, criticized in the past for dealing in personalities rather than issues, individually expressed a desire to shut off any angry exchanges. Board Chairman Richard Bartel said “I don’t want to start this all over again.” Supervisor Robert Burns agreed and the board voted to table the earlier action. 30 YEARS AGO - The British government announced a secret military zone, IO milos deep and stretching along 600 miles of England’s south and east coast would be established April I.
