Other supervisors' notes:
• Approved the "construction evaluation resolution" relating to the construction of any confinement operation structures in 2013. This is the Master Matrix, adopted by nearly every county in Iowa, to guide counties through hog confinement construction. Supervisor Craig Agan said he had spoken with a representative from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, who seemed to indicate that the legislation guiding the Master Matrix may need to be revisited.
• Appointed Dennis Haselhuhn to the Board of Adjustment. Zoning Administrator Missy Poffenbarger said Haselhuhn has served on this board since November 2002. The board is gender-balanced.
• Appointed Neulyn Miller to the Zoning Commission. Poffenbarger said this commission needs another member, preferably female. Miller has been on the commission since 2007. The commission is currently updating Marion County's Comprehensive Plan.
• The next regular Board of Supervisors' meeting will be Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 9 a.m.
