Supervisor District 5 Vacancy:

   The committee designated by Iowa Code Sections 69.8 and 69.14A (county treasurer, county auditor, and county recorder) to fill a vacancy on the Board of Supervisors is seeking public input on the desire of the citizens of Jones County to fill the vacancy by election, or by appointment.  Public input should be directed to any of the three county officials on the committee by email, mail, telephone, or in person at their offices not later than 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 10, 2015. In addition, persons residing in Supervisor District 5 interested in filling the vacancy should contact the committee members.

   The committee will meet at 3:00 p.m. on September 10th to review all public input received, and to make a decision whether to call for a special election, or to proceed with the process to make an appointment to fill the vacancy at a later date. If the committee decides to make an appointment to fill the vacancy, an official notice of such decision will be published prior to the appointment, and the citizens of Jones County will have the right to file a petition requesting a special election.  There are 16 months left in the term of office for Supervisor District 5.

Veteran Designation On Drivers Licenses and Identification Cards

Iowa veterans can now add a Veteran designation to their drivers license or nonoperator identification cards. PLEASE NOTE, this designation can only be added when the license or identification card is being renewed, or, if you are being issued for the first time. (For example, if you are moving in from out of state.) A link to the required form can be found by clicking here. Your County's Veterans Affairs office will need to complete part of that form before the designation can be added to your drivers license or identification card. The Jones County Veteran Affairs Office can be reached by calling (319) 462-5311 and the Jones County Treasurers Office can be reached at (319) 462-3550.
