The Grundy County Veteran’s Affairs office will be relocated from its current location in Reinbeck to the new county annex building in Grundy Center after the board of supervisors unanimously approved the decision on Monday morning.

           

County VA Director Janetta Miller-Buck, who also serves as a Grundy Center city councilwoman, told the board that the move made practical sense in allowing her to meet with clients and gather paperwork from the courthouse. She currently works out of the city hall building in Reinbeck.

           

“It would be much more efficient for me to be here in Grundy,” she said.

           

She reported that she’s seen 21 veterans during the last quarter, helping them with rides to the nearest VA clinic, property tax credits, compensation, obtaining medals, burial costs and driver’s licenses, among other issues. A motion to approve the move was approved unanimously, and the hours of service will not change.

           

Assistant County Engineer Steve Cox brought the board up to speed on several road construction projects in progress, including T55 north and south of Dike heading toward New Hartford and Reinbeck, respectively. It was mentioned that the new fire station in town could warrant a rumble strip on T55 from the north, as several drivers have missed the stop sign and shot over the road in the past.
