Floyd County Removes 2 Veterans Affairs Commissioners

CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - Floyd County officials have revoked the appointments of two members of its veterans affairs commission.

The Floyd County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to remove Ron Munshower and Sandra Paul from the Floyd County Veterans Affairs Commission because of alleged violations to the state's open meetings law.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports a former commissioner filed a complaint about Munshower and Paul in March to the Iowa Public Information Board.

Supervisors Chairman Roy Schwickerath says the commission was not specific about agenda items, and items were not posted in a timely manner. He says Munshower and Paul later voted not to follow recommendations to make them more specific.

The commission oversees the county's veterans office, which helps with various programs.

Munshower and Paul were unavailable for comment.
