SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A consultant to help mediate conflicts has been proposed for the Board of Supervisors in northwest Iowa’s Woodbury County.

The Sioux City Journal reports ( ) that board Chairman George Boykin made the suggestion at Tuesday’s meeting, saying that for the past several months, “We’ve not had a good dialogue on the board.”

Sheriff Dave Drew and county Auditor Pat Gill have used the public comment portion of weekly board meetings to address the five-member board. They’ve criticized various aspects of the courthouse security plan.

In addition, Supervisor Matthew Ung has confronted the board about how bills are approved and oversight of operations.

Boykin says a third party is needed to bring order to county government.

No decision about the consultant was made Tuesday.
