Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Johnson Supervisors Okay Mobile Kitchen Gazelle Photo bv Duane Crock Center Point Blaze 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. IOWA CITY — The Johnson county board of supervisors will locate a mobile kitchen at the Close mansion. The facility will consolidate cooking facilities for the county’s highly successful congregate meals program. The board accepted a low bid of $24,986 for renovation work at the mansion, a 100-year-old building that formerly housed a number of county facilities. A further cost estimate on total repairs for the mansion has been ordered. An appraisal of the building will be made by Roland Smith Realtors. The appraisal motion tarried by the single vole of Supervisor Chairman Richard Bartel. Supervisor Robert Burns abstained, saying that bet ause he is a Realtor, voting on an issue involving a Realtor, it could be a conflict of interest. Supervisor    Lorada Click 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 appraisal. Wednesday, Bartel alleged a number of oth< r documents are in a file cabinet of Administrative Assistant John Amidon. Bartel contends that because the documents bear the county auditor's stamp, they should be in the auditor’s possession. Supervisor Burns suggested “seeing that the auditor and the administrative assistant see each other every day, a simple verbal request should be sufficient.” In other business, the board approved a motion to seek a special attorney in the Iowa Data Professing, Inc., suit. The board contends County Auditor Delores Regers exceeded her authority 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 con f I it t of interest could arise if the county attorney is called upon to prosecute the county auditor. pen Thursday till 7:30 — Park in Rea Sales Outlook Cited By Trade Delegation DES MOINES (AP) — The Iowa Development commission trade mission to Austria and Soviet bloc countries has resulted in expectations of agreements to sell $680,000 worth of Iowa products in the next 12 months, the commission said Wednesday.
